That's pretty cool! But ... (you knew there was going to be a but,  
right?:-)

1.  The checkboxes are in the wrong place: they're under the category
     list, but the list they control is the applications list.

2.  The window is lopsided: the top of the category list is above the
     top of the applications list, and the bottom of the category list
     is above the bottom of the application description. One of these
     would be okay, but both looks bad.

These two can be fixed by putting the checkboxes in a horizontal row  
under the search field.

3.  If you don't know what category a program is in, you have to search
     them separately (at least, it looks like you do).

This can be fixed by adding an "All Categories" item to the beginning  
of the categories list.

(Usual disclaimer: I think g-a-i should be replaced by an item in the  
View menu of Synaptic or its successor.)
