Manually edit your menus, and repeat after any software updates?

I prefer the opposite.  If I want to run *some* program, I want to be
able to find it easily, e.g. look for gimp in the graphics menu.  I
don't want to have to separately wade through KDE or Gnome menus.  I
always found the KDE menus to be quite a mess, so that was another nail
in the coffin for me using KDE.

I would imagine it makes it easier to simply install to a collection of
boxes, identically, then configure individually.

[tim at localhost ~]$ uname -r
