Re: [Usability] A New Start Menu Design, which resemble windows

I thought that a good start menu could be judged by such criterion as below:
1. how many clicks your mouse need to perform before you can find a right item to act on.
2. how long a path your mouse have to move before you can find a right item to act on.
I thought we could design a better start menu than the current gnome menus. The Start Menu of windows could be a example to learn.

Long, I for one welcome the idea but I do not quite understand what this
would solve. (And as a lurker I want to make it super clear I am merely
one person and do not represent everyone here).
