I currently have no problem with it. Here are some reasons: - I prefer having separate tabs for favorites/all applications/Computer/History , instead of having a single huge menu with many submenus. - I prefer the search feature of Kickoff, which displays immediatly the icon of the app I'm searching. In kicker, the search feature justs grays out the directories, but I still have to browse the tree to find the application I want. When the application list is very long, it is still not very convenient. - I like the way applications are shown in menu: a "big" icon, application name written with big letters, application summary with small letters. So there is no confusion between application name and application summary. Maybe we should just ship Kickoff as a separate application, like kbfx ?
