Exactly.  That's an example of how Windows organizes its menus (in case
you didn't notice the "Start" menu reference), and it's obviously bogus.

The other example (that you clipped) is how Ubuntu does it, which is
much simpler to understand.

Yet the OP raised menu organization as a thing that Ubuntu does _badly_.
