Hey team,
I had mentioned Slab this past Sat during the SFD installation "party". I wanted to provide a link so you could try it out, especially if you have not heard of it.

https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/feisty/...70207-0ubuntu3

Once installed, simply add "Main Menu" to your panel, and enjoy. If you have problems, drop me a emial, or search slab on ubuntuforums (there appear to be a few entries)

Cheers,
Chris
