Why is everything in Loonix so idiotically overcomplicated? Take GTK bookmarks, for example. A normal person would just make a folder with symlinks, but these dense fuckers decided to invent some retarded XML config file. Or app menu. Again, just put links in a special dir. No, let's parse some retarded fucking desktop files. Unix way my ass.
If you like the unix way, don't bother with a desktop environment.The only real way to use desktop linux is using xinit and passing control to your window manager of choice.

Desktop files make sense because they allow you to define name, comment, localized versions of those two, execution in case you open it alone or with a file, icon and mimetype associations. And there's nothing retarded with it. It's a simple key=value file.
