For my own self I prefer to have no entry under the Start Menu and an icon
on the desktop for some programs, with an entry on the Start Menu and none
on the desktop for others.  It's all dependent on the frequency with which I
access the program.  I really dislike having an entry in both places.  The
SWORD project is one program that I access frequently enough to want it on
Desktop AND Quick Start and, as a result, I wouldn't want it to go onto my
Start Menu.  That said, most people probably won't want it that way and I
can always edit my Start Menu if I get fed up with it.  But it's just that I
like it if there is an option tucked away somewhere to opt out of the Start
Menu group.
