Who came up with the idea of "More Applications"?  It is a horrible idea.  I 
spend twenty seconds looking for applications wondering where the *%$^&%$ 
they are only to find that they have been hidden inside "More Applications".  
As a user how am I suppost to determine what is hidden in More Applications?  
The _only_ sensible way would be to have the folder include the first X 
number of applications and the rest go into More Application.  That way I can 
at least tell that alphabettically my application should be at the very 
bottom of the list where "More Applications" is.

Personally I vote to remove all of the "More Applications" menus.  Having 
large menus is better then being confused.
