I discovered it myself, but I agree that the launcher should not
permanently be there. This drove me up the wall while I was testing
it, almost 10% of my screen is unusable the majority of the time (how
will that work on 9" netbooks?)

I'm still on 10.04 which I really love as a system, my menu, icons,
notifications etc are where I expect them to be, it's fast and
reliable and I know when, for example, I have two terminal windows
open, and at a glance what I have on each virtual desktop. My menus
are tucked away until I need them.

I started with 7.04 and used to be on the cutting edge right up until
10.04, I installed 10.10 (when unity first hit) and hated the
instability of the system. Now I test each release in a virtual
machine from time to time (I tested the beta for 12.04 a few days ago)

I'm not saying don't evolve, just evolve in a way that most users
agree is a good idea, I thought that was the aim of Linux? Who's
driving the development course here? The users or canonical?
