MeMenu on Ubuntu

Just stumbled upon the page explaining the "MeMenu" concept, to be fully implemented in upcoming releases of Ubuntu. I like very much the Rationale under this project. With the other news, such as the music store that's just opening, it seems more and more difficult not to love Ubuntu, in my humble opinion ! ;-)
