Gnome The Alacarte menu editor is one of the major additions in GNOME 2.16. Already previously available in Ubuntu and other distributions, Alacarte adds a degree of customization that has been generally lacking since GNOME dropped its previous (proper) menu editor more than five years ago during the early 2.x releases.

Why edit the menu?

I see very litle reason to edit the menu. I think I may have once edited the menu using some new toy software from gnome-files, but the novelty of it quickly diminished. The menu in Gnome isn't like the start menu in Windows--it doesn't get cluttered like mad.

So I wonder why so many people want to be able to edit the menu so badly?

Curiosity, mostly. Everybody knows how in Windows. I first thought it couldn't be done in Linux. It took me years to stumble across fd.o and see how it's done - and even longer to install Ubuntu and see Alacarte...
