This is my spontaneous wishlist.

  * Speed up ubuntu-software-center (especially startup). On my 
reasonably new computer, it still takes several seconds to load and is 
one of the slowest applications I'm using. (E g, Libreoffice is 
significantly faster.)

  * Allocate resources to fixing all the small bugs every here and 
there, i e, improve quality.

  * I doubt I'll ever get someone to implement this, but I'm still 
missing the good old taskbar (a la Windows XP) in Unity...it was so easy 
to see what applications were running and to switch between them...
