MikeConigliaroI would love to be able to filter by:
Installed services (i.e. everything listed under services.msc)
Installed programs (i.e. everything listed under add/remove programs)
For installed services, we should be able to filter by many of the service attributes (e.g. display name, description, startup type, etc.). For installed programs, we should be able to filter by all the standard installer attributes (name, publisher, version, etc.)
Since these lists are much shorter than the list of "Installed Apps" (which is really just a list of every executable found on the system), they could presumably be updated much more often (e.g. hourly?) to give a more real-time view.
Jeff: These filters could be used to create those custom application categories on the left hand side of the mock-ups you showed this morning.
