Oh bloody hell! Must we copy every bad idea that Microsoft makes?
It is a real pita when all you want to do is launch one program. you
have to wait a considerable amount of time for control-center to load,
then you have to hunt for icons scattered all over creation, then your
system memory is used up by control center and also takes some time to
launch after the icon is found.
Except for it being even less eye appealing than the windows variant, it
is always in ICON view and cannot be changed to list view. It sure would
be nice for simple menu entries where you could launch a desired program
