You’re missing something. A menu that “shows everything” is unusable.
The Debian menu is a very good example of that kind of problem.
Try a lenny system (or a squeeze system with a disabled
gnome-menus-blacklist) and install both KDE and GNOME full desktops. Now
try to use the GNOME panel for an hour.
