I think it's weird in itself that the configuration menu is as
important as the applications or places menus are. In a well running
system the user is basically never exposed to any settings, so
(although this should be discussed with GNOME) I would rather opt for
hiding the whole System menu somewhere.
But even if it's there, I would propose the following renaming:
Preferences->Your Preferences (as I agree with Greg)
