I've had occasion to run into the Familiar Desktop panel setup recently (due to attempts to reinstall that script I've been playing with from LibreELEC) and I've got a question that's been bugging me. As people who see me around the forums know I'm a big fan of the Traditional Desktop and like the way things are thought out. I hated Familiar when it became the new default, but as I said I've had occasion to use it a bit lately.
Really like the way the Familiar panel opens with the super key. It's a nice feature that I wish would be extended to the Traditional Desktop as time goes on and the ability to navigate the menus by keyboard is something that I admit grows on you. The thing is though, the Familiar Desktop has not just a menu for applications, it also has its Preferences and System applets in a menu. There are variants of this in the Familiar Desktop, the panel launcher applet lists them right inside the launcher itself. This provides for less desktop real estate being taken up and a 'cleaner' look.
My question though is this: What happened to Places? Am I just not seeing a button somewhere or is places simply not considered important anymore? Is it really missing or am I just missing it?
