Ok, is it just me or does the gnome-control-center start off in the
What do I mean?
It seems that most users expect to see more than just their desktop
preferences when they go into something called a control center. They
expect to see something much more akin instead to the start-here view.
It has IMO all the aspects of a control center that the end user usually
expects to see.
Applications -- a place for them to edit their applications menu.
Desktop Preferences -- a place for them to set the desktop stuff.
Server Settings -- a place for them to configure server stuff like
services and all.
System Settings -- a place for them to get to the distro System
Doesn't this seem like a more logical starting point for a Control
Center as opposed to Desktop Preferences?
Or is just me?
