Between the two I think the latter plus an "s" makes more sense. Maybe expand 
to "Documents and Publishing". Home users need documents, but not necessarily

For the relative few that do any of it.

Edutainment & Games probably shouldn't be distinguished.

I'd put this in System. How many people use more than one? How many even know 
what an Emulator is?

I think subdividing media into graphics and multi-media is artificial. On 
Windows systems I put VLC, Adobe Reader, IrfanView, ITunes and so forth in a 
"Media" "folder" in "Programs".

How about just "Connections"? Or, "Sharing"?

> Settings

I like SUSE's "Personal Settings" to distinguish their many from the many 
system settings.

> System

> User-Apps

Seems like department of redundancy to me.

>      Lastly, the 'quicklaunch' app

Similar to Windows quick launch. Certain things everyone needs frequently 
ought to be there, while the main menu needs as many of either "most recently 
used" or most frequently used" as fits without exploding the main menu into a 
second column.
