About Applications: on my Windows 7 it returns
where .lnk files are stored (I believe these are used in the

are not the same on Windows and freedesktop: Windows uses
directories to make menu hierarchy, while freedesktop for the
same purpose use Categories field in .desktop files. Also .lnk
and .desktop are different things themselves.
