Am I the only one here who actually thinks that Unity is a Good Thing?
The "Average Users" that I support (ie non geeks) really like its
simplicity for using the half dozen apps they regularly use. That
covers the majority of users, though not the majority or readers here
For myself I think the main thing lacking is gui tools for configuring
the launcher items, including the setup of quicklinks (so right click
turns them into single level menus). For example I have setup a
Terminal launcher with shortcuts to ssh into each of the machines I
support, so right click gives me a list of them and I can get a
terminal window open on any of them with two clicks. I hope someone
is in the process of developing such an app.
I also like the quick way I can open apps not in the launcher, so to
open calculator for example I hit Super key and type cal Enter and I
am there. Much quicker than finding it in some menu or other.
