One, Matthias said 'primary'; the tree view still exists, it's just
expected that most of the time you'll find it more efficient to search.

Two, you can search on description as well as name, so if you know what
the thing does, you can probably find it.

For the Other category? We have various approaches, discussed in the bug
report, but it's not certain we'll adopt any of them for release time.
One is to dump all the Settings category items in System Tools, another
is to retain the Administration and Preferences categories from F14, yet
another is to just have Preferences and have all Settings category
entries in there.
