+1 from a Kubuntu user. I already found the previous (Jaunty) menus tedious
and switched to the classic menu and liked the fewer levels (at least easier

navigation) there. I'm currently running KDE 4.3 RC2 (on Arch Linux distro
temporarily) and even with the classic menu there are extra levels which
make it more annoying even if its just one extra click.

Please consider flattening the menu structure, you could think up another
for netbooks, but for desktops a user should be able to get to the
application they
are looking for with the least amount of clicks and mouse movement, even for
apps that are rarely opened and wont have in the history or desktop

If not KDE upstream, then I hope Kubuntu devs/designers decide to have a
which agains flattens the menus for Karmic...
