Hey Ali,
Some of these Apps in the menus are Apps that are normally 'hidden' by
other menus.
ToriOS tries to be more transparent and expose the user to all the
things they actually have, when I wrote the menu program I worked hard
to not exclude any of the apps installed, unless they were completely
useless in JWM, such as apps to configure GNOME/KDE/XFCE/etc...
The 'About ToriOS' menu was your suggestion, and I can easily remove
that in future builds, if you do not want it anymore.
