I agree that the default layout with panels on both the top and bottom
of the screen is not so good.  I always get rid of the top panel
immediately, and sometimes create a side panel with icons for
launching common applications.

A possible problem is when you have lots of windows and many of them
come from the same application.  For example I have 14 Firefox windows
(each with many tabs) open right now.
