Hi everyone! First of all, I would like to say a big thank you to the persons making Trinity possible!
In PCLinuxOS, between different window manager and desktop environment, the layout of how apps are classified is very similar, while Trinity has its own apps classification, which is the same as KDE3. Debian also has an apps classification that is common across almost all WM and DE.
I have seen somewhere that the next release of TDE will be freedesktop.org compliant. Does it means that TDE will adopt this new way of organizing apps? I would like to say that I prefer the new method of organizing the K menu than the one used in TDE. As an example, let's look at these 3 menu sub-levels: System, Utilities and Settings. These categories are almost overlapping in each other and it ends up that something that would be better placed in Settings ends up being in System or in Utilities. For this reason, I prefer to use the KickOff menu instead of the classic menu in Trinity, because I just have to type the name of the program I want to start in the search bar at the top, and it ends up being faster than trying to find where is the program I want to start.
Of course, the new way of menu classification is not 100% perfect, but I would say that, in my opinion, has made it a little more simple to use.
Would it be a good idea to make an option in the menu configuration program to let the users choose between the Trinity way of organizing the K menu (as in KDE3) and the new way of organizing the K menu (as in KDE4 and all the others DE and WM)?
