The current discussion show that we need to think about doing things in haiku.
The application menu should really split into cathegories by default. I know haiku wants to be a rebuild of beos, but we are always left this target behind us including the package management system and 64bit software. Here haiku should split the application menu into:
Network (or Internet and network)
Media (audio, video, recordind)
(This must be set as default folders, because every one have a own name for a cathegory now, this starts again chaos in the menu now)
Zeta do this im the past and it was some of the good things there.
I know this take much work at the packages, because they need to be taken to change the link into the menu, but only this can remove the chaos and overfloating of the menu.
If we do that we can move the desktop applets into applications too. And if we have any time a one window solution for the preferences (i really hoppe so), we can move this folder also under application.
If we want to get one step more, we can add a lokal folder as menusource there the application menu folders are linked (translated).
It would be fine to have multiple user support in haiku, i mean single users on one machine. Here i would prefer a container or protected folder for every users home directory. The home folder mounted then to the system the user loged in by startup. So every user can only look into its own home folder (only the amin can manage all).
If you have a child like me, who use also haiku, and it could be that he use the same computer, it would be better he can not look, write or delete things in other user directories.
What you are thinking about?
