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...

I'd prefer to have exactly one icon for mail in "Internet"

+ 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.

"Recording Volume Monitor" and "Volume Monitor" could also go. Agree
that we should get rid of the standard volume monitor (listed in both
Multimedia and System).
For PA, it'd make sense to keep "PA Manager" and "PA Preferences". PA
Preferences is listed in both "Multimedia" and "System" so be nice to
have it listed only once (and perhaps should move to the control

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

We should :-)
Almost all apps in g-c-c is also listed in the normal menu.

+ 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.

Sounds good.

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

I have it as well but not sure if I installed it manually or not.

+ Network Tools is listed in "Internet", "System" and "Utilities".
Should only be listed once but not sure in what category.
