Hear hear. Carefully taking my mentor hat off and hiding it away in a
corner ... ok, have my potential user's hat on now:

    That Apps dropdown is the silliest idea I've ever seen on a badly
    designed web-page in a month of Mondays.

Whew, that felt good. :)

Now to put it more diplomatically: users will very likely not expect to
find interesting top-level links (such as Register, or New Ticket, etc.)
hidden away inside a dropdown with an obscure name that I've never seen
anywhere else on the Web. I'll note that Trac follows the common
convention of exposing these links, and even Bloodhound duplicates
/most/ of them on the dashboard. Why can I, for example, see Search and
Create Ticket and Logout and Preferences, but not Register and

I think it would be no bad thing if the Apps dropdown just went away.
