Hi Ton,

1) Meaningless tooltips

The "System info" menu has as tooltip "Generate system info". That's

The problem is not in the tooltip, it’s in the implementation of the
“System info” itself.
In any other program when you choose “About” or “System Information”
a window pops up with all relevant information.
In Blender you choose “System Info” → then you change area type to Text
Editor → then you select text data block from the list in the Text Editor
Isn’t that over complicated for a simple “Sys Info” option?

Make it behave similar to “User Preferences” option: when you choose “Sys
Info” menu the new window pops up with “Text Editor” and sys-info datablock
already selected.
And no tooltip is required.
