Free software menus reinvented

To me, the menu button is something you use once or twice a week or maybe month. Every app I use regularly (maybe 5 or 10) I put in a button on the task bar. The 2 or 3 apps I use the most get a button on the task bar. Same with the folders I go to most often, another button, with 5 to 10 links to folders.

How you get to your apps and info is the most custom thing about really using your computer, why would you use a generic menu that they design to meet general usability of everyone.

The new menu interfaces are nice, but you can do better, because you know how you use your computer.
