Dragging to trash is not necessarily intuitive . One can have the
inspiration to try that , or not.
Some users (me included) would first try to right-click on an
application and hope to get a popup menu with different actions like
"info" , "add to favourites", "create shortcut in launcher" ,
"open in software center" , "rate this application " ,
