The whole Applications thing doesn't make much sense on Linux,

Probably you don't have local $XDG_CONFIG_DIR/fontconfig/fonts.conf file.

I've opened issue https://github.com/MyLittleRobo/standardpaths/issues/8

About Applications: on my Windows 7 it returns C:/Users/Username/Application Data/Microsoft/Windows/Start Menu/ProgramsC:/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows/Start Menu/Programs where .lnk files are stored (I believe these are used in the start menu). Since freedesktop systems use .desktop files it would be sane to return paths which contain them (~/.local/share/applications, /usr/local/share/applications and /usr/share/applications). I just have not implemented it yet. Though not sure it the whole thing can be useful, since things 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.
