Well, personal experiences differ, we all know that. Although I can
understand the reasoning behind this last remark, I can't remember
that I ever read a user complaining about the "More" feature within
years of forum reading. Either people really did not regard it as such
a nuisance or if they did they easily changed it with the menue
I also experienced that people who install apps the manual way tend to
place them on the desktop (create an icon) rather for quick access
than care for putting them in the menue.
