Hmm, the new installer did go in late, but should have been there. It was 
in my alpha (daily) downloaded before that. Unless the beta image did not 
point at the right iso. You should have noticed that all the workflow 
submenus have new icons too. The icon for the "extra audio production 
applications" should be the one you designed for me.

USC should only show up in two places (oops three): on the main menu (I 
would like to remove it from there... or make that the only place), in the 
system folder and on the bottom panel (I would like to remove that as I 
have noticed that my non-programer wife just finds it to be an anoyance 
when trying to select something close to the bottom of the screen).

USC definately shows up in too many place in my opinion. I had not said 
much because I thought it was just part of being a Ubuntu flavour. Now 
that I have tried all the official flavours, I know different (kubuntu and 
lubuntu have their own SC and LSC for sure is only free content) and would 
like to at least minimize it's presence if not remove it completely.

One of the "selling points" of Ubuntu (or gnu/linux in general) is the 
large amount of software available. Synaptic is not really a great 
showcase for this and so USC was created. From that POV, USC (or something 
like it) should be somewhere. It is too bad it is so big, slow and clumsy. 
There is the possibility of xubuntu helping to develop LSC. That would 
probably be a better choice for us.
