#8181: 23.2; Dired on Windows 7

which was filed against the emacs package, has been closed.
Good and fast work by all. But I still have my original question. Why is the behavior different from Cx d which it lists as an equivalent? I can see that having access to a Windows dialog box can be useful for things like recently visited directories, so the ability to access the Microsoft dialog boxes is nice. I had assumed that Visit New File... gave the same result as C-x C-f, and Open File.., with no keyboard equivalent went through the the Windows menuing system. It wasn't until now that I found out they were the same. (I started in computing well before terminals with displays and windowing systems were common, and I have been using Emacs for over 30 years. So by the time I conclude I want to open a file or directory, I'm typing its name in the minibuffer. (Unless, apparently, I have a hot cup of tea in my left hand. ;-)
