Why I get impression that this Start Center is one step ahead and two steps
back?

In my opinion:
+ there should be "Open" and "Templates" icons. Without them, options are
invisible ("dead zone" for eyes)
+ there should be "Location" address bar.
+ every thumbnail should has gray background only if mouse cursor is over
document
+ user should can manage single document and whole list as well.
+ tabs are really nice feature if user works with many documents

And last but not least. I remove "new" prefix because other language than
English are not so simple and this short word will looks obscure e.g. in
Polish.
