I would like Adobe to utilize the non-legacy save/open Windows 7 dialog box

So I downloaded the trial for CS5.5 Master Suite and found that the open/save dialog box is the same thing from CS5.  This is a huge disappointment.
Reason being is explained right here: http://www.sanneblad.com/2010/06/18/customizing-the-open-and-save-dialogs-in-adobe-cs5-for -windows/
Common File Dialog is being used still by CS5 and CS5.5 which is outdated and legacy.
[Starting with Windows Vista, the Open and Save As common dialog boxes have been superseded by the Common Item Dialog. We recommended that you use the Common Item Dialog API instead of these dialog boxes from the Common Dialog Box Library.]
The Open dialog box lets the user specify the drive,  directory, and the name of a file or set of files to open. You create  and display an Open dialog box by initializing an OPENFILENAME structure and passing the structure to the GetOpenFileName function.
The Save As dialog box lets the user specify the drive, directory, and name of a file to save. You create and display a Save As dialog box by initializing an OPENFILENAME structure and passing the structure to the GetSaveFileName function.
Explorer-style Open and Save As dialog boxes provide user-interface features that are similar to the  Windows Explorer. However, the system continues to support old-style Open and Save As dialog boxes for applications that must be consistent with the old-style user interface.
In addition to the difference in appearance, the Explorer-style and  old-style dialog boxes differ in their use of custom templates and hook  procedures for customizing the dialog boxes. However, the Explorer-style  and old-style dialog boxes have the same behavior for most basic  operations, such as specifying a file name filter, validating the user's  input, and getting the file name specified by the user. For more  information about the Explorer-style and old-style dialog boxes, see Open and Save As Dialog Box Customization.
The following illustration shows a typical Explorer-style Open dialog box.

It appears it would be a simple retooling of the code in order for this to work.  I truly hope that Windows 8 will force all software developers to utilize the new Common Item Dialog API.

We've been trying to - but we still have to support XP and Vista.

Um, no, not that simple.
