START Menu

I am currently in the development stages (alpha) of my START menu.
Name: START (Start The Apps Real fasT)
Purpose: To have a fast, simple start menu.
Background: START, or Start The Apps Real fasT, is my attempt at a fully open source Start menu to rival closed source apps like PStart. The advantages of having it open source is that it will (possibly (hopefully)) be fully customisable. Another advantage is that it will be very small.

My question is:
What features would you like to see?
Code is at https://portableapps.com/node/796

some features

It should small in size, but have the functionality of PStart. Having large icons would be good (like Pstart). And, though this may seem like an odd request, I would like you to make sure that it works on all Windows OSs including WINE for Linux. I use an Ubuntu laptop often, and I use all of John's apps using WINE, and Pstart works with it. If I'm going to switch to your new app, I need that functionality.

Damm

I can't get icons. Sorry.
What is the functionality of PStart.
And I plan to keep it small, as it is done with NSIS and UPX
WINE should work with this.

functionality

Well, like the easy to use interface, an easy way to add things and remove them, etc. Thanks for the punctual reply!

Start menu

Am looking forward to this, if you can improve on PStart you have my ultimate respect. I have messed with various launchers altering the paths to be relative etc, not having been born in the computer age I need things to just WORK!
