That, or perhaps, cache should remove older versions of packages, with
an option to keep the last two.

e.g. I had several kernel updates cached.  It's useful to keep more than
one, in case I want to re-install an older one.  But I don't think I
need half a dozen.  Likewise with other packages.

Waste of time, it should just shutdown.  Prolonging shutdown to show
some picture isn't in anyone's interests.  And this windows mentality of
hiding services as the machine starts up and shuts down just makes
things harder to diagnose when they go wrong.

You should say whether you're using Gnome, KDE, or something else.  I
don't see a huge list in Gnome, I see a small list of categories, and
each has a small list of applicable preferences inside them.

[tim localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
