Good point. But why must a user choose a category in order to find an
application? Surely a menu is only useful if the user doesn't know what
the application is called. Surely an app can be in multiple categories?

I'm not a fan of hunting through menus. It makes no sense to me that my
(Evolution) address book is under the "Internet" menu, but my calendar
is under "Office".

Perhaps we should look for a different approach.
