For OpenBeOS, I picture a simple and >elegant install/uninstall app that has two modes. I would also like to have an automatically created and decent file structure - just like BeBits categories; so not just all apps in /boot/ apps/, but: /boot/apps/internet/ /boot/apps/audio/ .. Furthermore, we could have /boot/apps/vendor/ with symlinks to the installed application of a certain company/developer. Of course I am not sure what the benefit of this would be :-) I think you get the idea - I am a bit annoyed to have to organize the applications in a useful and logical way all by myself. Adios...
