Yes that looks very neat and tidy - the second tier menu was getting
rather too cluttered for my liking. 

I do like gst and have used it on an older Debian system before but
nowadays its a rare sight in the big distros (I cant even get it for
Fedora 1.9). Its such a shame cause we need to have consistency at this
level - I really hate the way administrating your system varies between
distros (it smacks of propriety vendor lock-in to me). 

I would like to see similar tools such as a Gnome Hardware manager that
would allow you to set up hardware devices like printers and scanners in
a distro neutral fashion. Also a Gnome Package Manager that would
interface to whatever package system the distro used would be good too.
Heck you could go the whole hog and create a Gnome Linux distro that's
community controlled and componentised with those tools (unlike Fedora
thats controlled by RH and is monolithic in design) - now there's a nice

( I wonder if Bruce Perens might be interested in the above - I think
Gnome Linux would be a better name than UserLinux too :)
