This is wy this thread is going to be very long... it would be nice with
some kind of a summary here. We seem to have all kinds of diffrent opinions
here and that's good i guess.

So are you for or against that DD should make one common menu for the
desktops, only letting the diffrent looks become the choice the user has
to make? Redhat's attemt to do this was not so popular(IMHO, they overdid it
a bit) Or did i misunderstand your intentions?
