Re:Gnome is annoying

The Menu editor is back, and much better. It's a massive improvement over the old Debian menu system and it actually has the tools to configure it _properly_ as well (that means properly merging user configuration with System configuration). The only grievances I have anymore with it is inability to drag and drop menu items (which it looks like they're working on implementing) and not being able to specify theme-independent icons, which has been a problem in everything I've used but XFCE. The best part is maintained compatibility with a fallback of XML file editing. That's a major strength of most of the GNOME config tools actually, they don't keep their own configuration somewhere; they actually work with the underlying configuration files.
