I can certainly relate to the usability issues you identify.  May I
suggest renaming Desktop Publishing.  That has very specific meaning to
many folks such as myself.  I'm not sure what a good name would be
because there are so many important items in there.  Perhaps something
like Productivity Tools, Office Tools, Business Tools - I'm not sure.

I'll admit that I didn't like the KDE4 menu system at all but, as I used
it more and more, I realized it did make one important improvement once
it sunk in how to use it.  It allowed the mouse to stay still and move
the menu (via scrolling) rather than keeping the menu fixed and moving
the mouse.  Once I got used to that, it was much, much more productive
than moving my mouse all over the screen.  Would there be some way to
incorporate that? Thanks - John
