Thanks for the feedback.

I met with mchua this morning on #sugar-meeting and It looks like the 
proposal is to just add 1 item to existing Browse start new screen for 
the Soas Spin only.

A Crude mock up is available at 

The idea is to add this "Menu"  link to the existing screen and point it 
to http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Sugar_Creation_Kit#Introduction

AFAIK quite a bit of thought has gone into the current design. I suggest gradually improving it rather than starting over with a cluttered page (as your screenshot suggests).
