GNOME menu structure in openSuse

If you don't like the structure of traditional GNOME menu in openSuse 11.0, with its plethora of sub-categories in each submenu, then here is a simple workaround: just copy or rename /etc/xdg/menus/ to This file defines how menu entires should be laid out in the menus with respect to their "Categories" definitions in *.desktop files. The defines a simple layout with top-level categories only - see screenshots. The only side effect of this trick that I noticed so far is no menu entry for YaST, but this can be added manually with menu editor.
