I have had a problem to find correct category for these types of

1) Desktop Publishing (both DTP and Color Management applications).
it is not WordProcessor, it is not VectorGraphics, it is not FlowChart
it is not Photography, 2DGraphics seems to be vague, too).

I propose new category
Publishing (Graphics or Office)
or as an alternative
DTP or Publishing (Graphics or Office) and ColorManagement (Graphics)

2) Special hardware health monitors (e. g. UPS monitor, temperature
sensors). There is only HardwareSettings (these applications cannot set
anything) and Monitor (which is relatively far from hardware).

Proposed category
HardwareMonitor (Settings or System)

or more generic
Hardware or HardwareSupport (Settings or System)
