Google reminds devs that the menu button is a dying beast

I think this is a good idea. There have been so many times when I've been looking for things, only to find it hidden in the More section of the Menu button.

I always use the menu button, and I rarely use the search.

Are they trying to look like Windows Phone so they get sued by Microsoft now or what? That really sounds exactly how the overflow stuff in Windows Phone works where it slides up the extra menus at the bottom. Only thing missing is hiding names of the buttons until the ... are pushed/slid up.

I like the menu button...
Well, luckily with custom ROMs we can probably hold on to it a little longer even if they do take it away.

I wonder what George Carlin would have to say about going from "menu" to "action overflow button"...
An action bar just sounds like something to take back the screen real estate that was gained with the removal of physical buttons.

I like the menu button too. And I love the search button. I'm always holding it down to use voice commands.
