Description

See the discussion on https://lists.autistici.org/message/20190831.084510.f7549ca4.en.html.

I should be relatively easy to replace the "Activities" button with a "Applications ⏷" and thus have the exact same discoverability for it.

We should still be careful about the usability of the Activities overview itself and make sure that it's actually better than the current state of things before doing the change.

I won't argue endlessly here, but with the info I have in hand, IMO you're setting the bar needlessly high with "better than the current state of things": from my perspective, as long as the new thing is not worse for users than the current state of things, we have other motivations to justify the move. That is, mostly: making the Tails code base easier to maintain, so we can focus development resources in other areas… where we can for example improve UX :)

This being said, I also understand that you may prefer not to spend your limited UX work time on something that will actually not improve UX directly.

Cheers!
