Hi,

Looking at the my applications menu (or at the application browser), I
can see many items which are just cluttering the whole thing.

Here are a few proposals:

+ remove a few evolution items:
- agenda
- address book
- task list
We can keep "Mail and Calendar" in Office and probably "Mail" in
Internet. Although I'd love to keep only the first one...

+ remove eye of GNOME? Do people really manually start eog? It's a bit
like evince, which doesn't appear in the menu...

+ remove most of the pulseaudio launchers. They're mostly confusing. It
might make sense to keep the PA preferences.
We also need to hide the launcher for the standard volume control app
if we use the pulseaudio one.
I'm actually wondering if we need to keep the launcher for volume
control since the way to access this should be the applet.

+ we have lots of control center stuff appearing in System and
Utilities. We should fix this, I guess.

+ hide epiphany bookmarks? (I know, it's not installed by default :-))

+ I think Magnus also noted we had 3 launchers for search (beagle,
gnome-search-tool and nautilus search). We should probably at least
hide gnome-search-tool or nautilus search.

(I see I have ghex installed -- is this installed by default??? Doesn't
make sense to me)

Agreed, all of them are useless or provide some confusion to the user imo. I
Wonder if CD/DVD Creator could be as well since it can be launched in
nautilus.
GO GO GO!
