[K12OSN] New menus - Reduced application collection


I would like to drive a process to create a reduced set of applications
for a K12 teaching environment, selected for Thin-Client friendliness,
coverage of subject area, and application quality. I would dearly like
to have One good application for each task - i.e. we must choose between
Thunderbird and Evolution. Feel free to add both, but add comments
as to why it should be included (or not).

The first thing to specify is categories. I have a set below, but I
welcome any changes. I am picking gnome over kde apps - we need one
flavour ? I encourage people to use the Wiki (linked above) rather
than the mailing list, but if you think the mailing list is more
appropriate ..

Should Categories be ordered/flagged by Grade ?

Cheers,    Andy!
