Top Priority

This should be the number one priority for the launcher. I have around 30 applications on my drive. It is a real pain scrolling and trying to find the app I want.
Besides the normal stuff that I use for myself like PortableFirefox, I have a lot of different apps for cleaning up PC's. It would be really nice to be able to have different sub folders for the different application types I have

You could make it work like the new menu in Windows Vista. That would be really nice.

Other then that I really like the launcher. It looks nice and runs really fast. I like it so much of been putting up with loss of a cascading menu to use it.

I second that!

I second that! Sub folders/menus like PStart has is a must!

I agree

As well as for those of us that have a lot of apps to have to scroll through, logical grouping of apps by folders is far more convenient the current alphabetical scheme.

I would suggest doing it by

I would suggest doing it by tags. That way apps can be tagged with multiple tags, and appear in more then one part of the menu.

Not really targeted at you

The current menu isn't really targeted at a very techie user with tons of apps. It's designed for the average user that uses a dozen or two dozen apps. Even 3 dozen apps would work well in the current setup as it shows 20 at a time and scrolling is quite easy with the mousewheel (and soon the arrow keys). But, it's not designed for someone that collects apps that aren't used on a regular basis (and you can't tell me you use more than 100 apps in a given day... or even given week Blum ).

That said, categorization of apps into folders is on the list for a later release. Until then, I'd suggest you use ASuite

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
