For me at least, if everything would be merged into one only sub-menu i
would know where to do something that normally i won't use every day of my
normal use of a computer. So, in favor of space and practicity i'm with
Julien on this. It would remind me a little of XP wich honestly, was good.

the adress column to make the pcmanfm-control-center?!?!?? How sad :'(
