They try.  You can choose to see apps listed in one of a number of ways:

  Name Only          (e.g., "Kopete")
  Description Only   (e.g., "Instant Messenger")
  Name & Description (e.g., "Kopete (Instant Messenger)" or "Kopete - Ins...")
  Description & Name (e.g., "Instant Messenger (Kopete)")

In any case, the heirarchy of application menus on Linux & friends is WAY
better than what I've seen on Windows.

J Random Company needs to have their own menu item, and all their apps
go in there!?  And everything's pretty much a big flat list!  (The only
heirarchy being that there's an "Accessories" submenu, or something.)


But I do tend to agree... Krunner is a much quicker way to access apps
than having to move my hand over to the mouse, or fiddle with this
infernal trackpad.
