    You can't put Graphics as a subcategory of Apple Software. It should be a top-level category like Networking. There should be subcategories:

    Graphics Hardware
    Graphics Software
    Apple Graphics Software

    BTW, Storage should also be a top-level category, with subcategories
    Storage Hardware
    Storage Software

    The problem is, it's not really organized hierarchically. All categories are related to all others. I don't think your organization scheme is any better than what's evolved out there. For example, what's "graphics hardware," anyway? Couldn't you divide it into, say, "input devices," "Graphics cards," and "Displays"?

    Of course you can subcategorize further.

    I've suggested this in some other thread. Some people want "Apple Software", and others like me, want "Software->Graphics". So, I suggested putting both categories on a page.

    iTunes
    [[Category: Audio]] (which is a caategory itself of Software)
    [[Category: Apple Software]]


    This way, both paths are satisfied: those who want a list of Apple products and those who wish to find some new Audio program.

    [[Graphics Hardware]] is a bad category name, in my opinion. Should be [[Hardware]]->[[Graphics]].
