Users who can't remember where they put things are simply lacking the discipline of using a filesystem.
I'm afraid that covers about 99% of casual users. Most of them can't use the "find" function as well. I think most of the improvements mentioned in the article are not useful for the poweruser (e.g. it's slow to startup an application from an application menu - I have a shortcut for often-used applications and use a shell to start not so often used applications), but could be useful for that other 99%. Of course, it all depends on how good the implementation will be, but it should be configurable, in order to not get into the way of powerusers.
