Unity and Classic

This isn't a bad idea either. At least having the filters already onscreen
would make things a little more usable. I would wager a lot of people don't
readily correlate the phrase "Filter Results" with "Application
Categories", or just don't see the dropdown.

Further on this topic, instead of a rigid set of default apps, what about
moving the Frequently Used section from the Apps lens into the home lens?

With this in place, the Frequently Used section in the Apps lens would be
redundant. That could be removed, and with the filters already onscreen
things would be roughly as streamlined as a classic-style menu.
