Problems with GNOME

I have been using Redhat 8.0 since last Halloween. So far, I prefer KDE.

Gnome seems to be missing some functionality that KDE has, but my main beef with GNOME is that brain damage they call the GNOME menu. Maybe I don't have something installed properly, but I did some searching for the location of the app shortcuts. I came across some sort of XML file which sorts everything in /usr/share/applications into various categories. This isn't too much of a problem, except 1) Redhat puts everything that is not part of their "base" installation in the "Extras" menu and 2) it does not look in the user's home directory for items. so only the super-user can add to it.

Is this just a Redhat thing? Can I use a KDE-like menu system with GNOME?
