5 uses of 5 softwares

I want to see the top 5 A/V apps, audio, video, flash creator, etc have their 5 top uses tweaked to be simple and quick.
Every free software should look at itself (or ask peple outside who arent vested in teh project) and say which five uses people use the most.
if its audio. most people want to cut clips out, or they just want to change the kbps, or save in another format, made add clips together if they are doing a podcast.
once you have these uses, then you go about to make it a one click experience, not opening three menus to convert your audio into a different format.

You can have advanced features but your top 5 uses always account for more than 50% of its day to day use.

Concentrate on this.

Or as my dad would say about most software: "Why cant it be as simple to use as VLC?"
