Slab: A revamped Gnome Main Menu

I tried OpenSUSE for a while, and I could not like it for one reason: Package management is terrible. After you get used to "aptitude install", with mirrors of the repositories in nearly every country, it is hard to settle for anything less.

Among the things I did like about Novell's version of Linux is the Gnome main menu they use, called slab. It provides easy access to the most important things you expect of a main menu, but it's not as bloated as other menus like Gimmie.

Well, what better than to show a screenshot of it, no?

If you want to try it out, you just have to:

sudo aptitude install gnome-main-menu
