gnome doesn't have a sigle start button philosophy ... it's just that
the default setup has the root menu positioned on the left side .... you
can add the submenus around the panel ... you can customize the panel
quite a lot ... unlike windows95 ... the panel is a different for of
interface then the win95 philosophy .... the panel is more like
traditional x setups .... it's a place to put icons of your recently
used apps and where to put/swallow some useless things like clock or the
cpu monitor or a cdplayer .... since there is quite a lot of things that
are to be presented .. it makes sense to put them all in a menu ... and
where to put the menu ... on the panel ... makes a lot of sense to me
