So far I'm liking the new Unity interface, but there are certain aspects of the Applications lens/dash that I find a bit inconvenient. For example, I have about 30 games installed on my desktop.
With the old main menu, I could edit the games into categories, and it was very quick to view all card games, or all arcade games.
With the current set-up, there's no problem if I know which game (or other program) I want, but if I want to browse through the games, it's less convenient. Once I click on the Applications lens, I have to pick Games from the drop-down menu (which requires more mouse movements than before), and after that, the games remain unsorted, so I can't browse by category.
What I would like would be able to create a launcher buttons similar to the Applications button, for specific groups of programs, so that I could, for example, click on an 'Arcade' button in the launcher, and see a list of arcade games. Is there (now or in the future) any way for someone without programming skills to do something like this? (Ideally, it would be of a similar level of difficulty to editing the Gnome main menu.)
