I don't like it because I can't find the most common apps anymore.  I used
to be able to navigate through the Applications menu using general
categories like Graphics, Games, Sound  & Video, etc.  Now I stare blankly
at a dialog box that expects me to have memorized every app name that I
might use and I have to TYPE THAT COMMAND LINE NAME IN.  WTF.  That's a
terrible user experience.
