I would like a tool that let me to remove easy linux kernels that i don´t use more. Or add an option in Synaptic that show me all kernels installed and let me an option to remove the kernels that i don´t like.
Actually Eldmannen, what may be considered a better way to remove them would be to remove the packages:
These are the dependencies of the linux-image-generic package that is a meta package of the current kernel. It's listed in the Meta Packages section in Synaptic. Older kernels are found in the Base System section. The entire fact that no one really uses sections in Synaptic, particularly considering how useful they are, just goes to show that Synaptic needs a GUI overhaul.
i gave a +1 but only for the fact that it needs a gui. I'm not a baby boomer, and im not a genius, im fairly knowledgeable when it comes to computers. I switched to ubuntu from XP 3 weeks ago. i already have 4 different kernels, and i have no idea of how to delete them, or even if i should. So for the beginner to novice user i think there should at least be an easy gui.

Yes, my idea is basically to add a gui that let me to remove the kernel. I can do manually, but for example, a user who came for Windows it is hard to remove the kernel like cheese 2122 said. Novels that coma from for Windows, don´t know how to remove a kernel.
