it's my personal opinion. I don't usually put imho's anywhere because what
else should I express, so this one is really a subjective view.

they didn't understand that it's any different from windoze. none of my
"victims" even got the IDEA that one could customize it. for example, nobody
even TRIED to right-click on the panel.

I don't mind if in the end it shows that 62.5% of people prefer a single
menu folder. as long as they did the conscious decision to make it that way
and knew that they could have it differently. I fear that with the current
default config 62.5% of the people will not KNOW the true power.

The universe does not have laws -- it has habits, and habits can be broken.
