I booted a hardy livecd yesterday and I agree with quite a few of the
points made there.

The "Internet" menu is particularly bad - "Transmission" (which
strikes me as something that only the vast minority of desktop users
will use) doesn't explain what it is, and the Avahi entries are really
confusing (the SSH one duplicates nautilus's "Connect to Server"
function, afaics).

Has any progress been made on the spec? I'm happy to start filing a
few bugs about these issues.
