Awesome! Though, oddly enough, I would suggest going with "GNOME" for this
very public menu name. Or something more globally descriptive than "Main".
(The difference here is that it becomes relevant all the time, rather than
just a description in a context menu.)
> File tools
> Text editors
I'd combine these. The Accessories menu you have here has categories for
things that 'normal' users would only want a single icon for, such as
terminals, text editors, etc.
> Desktop preferences
> GNOME System Tools
I'm still not confident that a top-level Preferences menu is a good idea.
Like Mac OS X, Preferences could fit very well into the first Main menu.

Hmm! Interesting! I'm sure the docs guys will love you for this suggestion.
