Description:

(First, sorry for my bad english)

So, there is a lot of mockup about a new menu for Gnome.
Indeed, the menu we use for now is not so bad : it\\\'s simple, it\\\'s fast, and it\\\'s not ugly.
But it can become really really annoying if you have a lot of programs in the same category.

The menu I drawed wants to be cute, make people find their apps fast, and not getting so huge when you have too much apps.
It keeps the \\\"Applications / Places / System\\\" system, but it\\\'s trying to make the menu cleaner, cuter and easier.

I\\\'m actually not going to develop it (maybe some day i\\\'ll try something in PyGTK), but if someone likes it and want to make it alive, I would be honored.

I think it's a nice mockup. Maybe something like this could be made by modifying the gimmie applet. Also, I think it'd be important that categories should expand just by hovering over them, since it would be annoying to click on a category and then have to click once more for the application, like KDE does.

I'm so utterly tired of menus that cripples my system just opening. Smaller, lighter menus with better and less content, rather than bigger, content-filled-to-the-brink-of-imploding-on-itself menus.

The goal of this menu is to be smaller.
It's the same menu that what we have now, but it's not getting huge when you have too much apps.
Just watch in System/Preferences... it's hideous and it's just too big. And my Games menu is just so horrible that I really need to concentrate if I want to find the game I want to play.
I made this mockup so we can have something light, who do (like Gnome wants is apps to be) just what it's supposed to do : showing your apps and allow you to launch it easily and fast.

This mockup doesn't seem to support multilevel folders and the tooltips could be more elegant(if its text doesn't fit the menu item the part that doesn't fit coul be replaced by ...).
The scrollbar could(shoud in my opinion) be replaced by the kind of arrows currently present in the current menu(and possibly higher) and should be also available in the places menu in the bookmarks and mout points sections for scalability.
Also I like the option of having all the preferences and administration items in a menu as I can launch them whith just two clicks. This would also leverage the search function of the menu.
Sorry for any spelling errors.
