Why did they move the 'Show Desktop' icon to the top of the launcher? I really liked it a lot better next to the 'Workspace Switcher'.This doesn't seem like a logical decision to me. They could also make it configurable with a right-click menu so we can move it where ever we like on the launcher. This decision doesn't make much sense to me. Perhaps a design mastermind could enlighten me?

If you go into CCSM, Unity, and then Experimental you will find an option to show "Desktop Icon". Previously this icon was next to the Desktop Switcher if you enabled it, but in 5.4 (I think) they changed it to display at the top of the launcher above the BFB.

It's also in myunity and it puts the show desktop icon above dash.

Most probably a bug.
