Oh, like a Windows start menu?
I guess that would come from a desktop manager.
Otherwise, perhaps you could find apps from
the package manager
I would suggest you look for what you want,
then install it.
How you do that depends on the distribution. If you're
looking for games on a Debian-based system, I would suggest
at the command line you type:
apt-cache search game
This returns over 1500 results.
apt-cache search application
returns over 9000 results.
apt-get install <packagename>
for what interests you.
Other package managers are yum (Suse?) and rpm (Red Hat).
Otherwise, perhaps a desktop environment will give you some
ready-to-use applications, in that case, installing Gnome or
KDE, and all that comes with them.
Hope that helps,
