From Bugzilla Helper:

Description of problem:
The KDE Go menu in Red Hat Limbo is missing many options available in 7.3. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Red Hat Limbo with Gnome and KDE
2.Examine the KDE Menus


Actual Results:  None of the Red Hat configuration tools apps are avaliable in the KDE System menu as they were in 7.3. 

Expected Results:  This is a usability issue. Making users visit a second menu structure to perform basic configuration functions seems odd. KDE users still need to configure X, add users, etc. 

OpenOffice is also missing from the KDE menus. OpenOffice isn't a GNOME specific application, but it only appears in its entirety under the GNOME menus.

Many KDE users prefer to run run GTK/GNOME apps for particular functionality - eg, Evolution, etc. The opposite also applied. Logically, users pick application based on what they do, not their toolkit. Sorting general applications by what they do (by using the shared menu in /etc/X11/applnk, as 7.3 often did) seems a much better way of sorting applications.
