I think that rather having a programs list we should just have two pages, a list such as this one with programs that come with every computer and another for programs that come with turtles (and, when they're publicly released, pocket computers).

All the programs on the list are also on the list which contains the built in programs, so it just seems rather pointless to have a page about programs such as 'id'. I can understand the need for pages such as the GPS page, however. Maybe the link on the front page should go to the list of built in programs and that list have links to the various sub-pages (GPS, etc.) There won't be any other programs there, user-made programs shouldn't really be on the wiki.

As the page 'CraftOS Shell' is essentially a list of built in programs I also think it should be renamed to something more suitable, ('Built-in Programs' or something along those lines).

Having such a page makes it easier to find things, be it via category browsing, regular wiki searching, or just typing "promising keywords" directly into your address bar. It also helps out regular web search engines, which are much more likely to offer wiki pages for a given search if their names match whatever was actually searched for.

I recommend such pages be kept, and have navigation templates added to them.
