14.0 Beta 1 - WindowMaker has OpenSuSE Category

Starting to play around with B1 and loaded up WindowMaker. Expanding on the Application menu, I noticed a category titled OpenSuse. While not earth shattering, it did cause me to chuckle as I started out on SuSE

While OpenSUSE is great, it's not Slackware...
So the category "OpenSUSE" is a bit irritating on anything that is *not*, well, OpenSUSE...

However, apart from that category, what is great: This incarnation of Windowmaker is the first I ever saw in Slackware with a correct applications menu! It has the applications, that are actually installed in my system, not something buried somewhere in config file. Did you notice? No manual editing required.


Last time I had this comfort with Windowmaker was years ago, when I was using, well, SuSE Linux...
