Make cleanup in applications and Control Center

Feature state

openSUSE-11.2
Rejected Information

Description

What i find every time very irritating is the idea behind Control Center and applications. It should be clearly differed. After a clean install there are too many configuration tools in the applications browser what makes it difficult to browse (despite having an option to search, of course if You know what You are searching for). Not everyone knows how to clean everything up, in my example most configuration tools are in the Control Center what makes A LOT more room for applications in Application Browser what makes it easier to browse for apps.
SO: make a clear distinction of what is a configuration tool and what is an application.

Sigi, that's a clear usability thing. Can you comment on it and give us a hint about ressources needed.

Sorry, but what do you mean with "appliactions browser"? The "Appliactions" tab in the KDE start menu? And do you mean the KDE "System Settings" dialog when you talk about the "Control Center"?

Ah, I got it, it's Gnome related.

My first comment: The current design is based on a SLED base -- with less appliactions and configuration tools. The openSUSE base will really strech this concept (e.g. the "System" section in my Gnome shows 61 items and many of them are configuration tools.)
