I have been around Linux for about ten years or so now. I have always made
mine look and act like I wanted it to look and act. How did I do that? By
RTM, the Release Notes, things such as that, and asking questions. I did the
same thing when I used Windows.

As for me? I'm just user. You need to complain to the people that maintain
the menus. And I have no idea if any of them follow this general helper
list.  Personally I would think not. And personally I don't care.

Rather than type here may I suggest that you use Bugzilla? Ask for a change
in the way the menu is laid out. That way you will get their attention. And
a much better argument too.  :-)

Have a nice day.
