    Mixed feelings about this.

    On my machines I've seen many occasions where indicators loaded improperly or got moved around (during projection).

    So I was fed up with seeing that.
    On my testing 11.04 doesn't suffer from this.

    Have a look at this system monitor indicator http://www.webupd8.org/2011/03/syste...s-cpu-and.html
    It's not the sane, but better than nothing.

    Personally I'm more concerned about temperature, which is also an indicator of how hard the CPU is working, so I always install either 'computertemp' or 'sensors-applet'.

    Another one I miss is the power manager inhibit applet. It's just so easy to click on that if I'm going to watch a video and don't want the screensaver to activate at all

    That's a bug with gnome-panel and the murrine-based themes. This bug will not appear in natty because the buggy panels are gone.

    Yes and I'm quite pleased with that.

    I do like the unity bar at the top but yes it is drastically missing the notifications and applets we had before. I only installed last night but this missing is tempting me to roll back already.

    I shall persevere for now, and I've added things to my Docky menu. I miss being able to glance and know my CPU/ram/network load, weather, mounted drives, dropbox action.

    I plan on trying different docks myself at the bottom of the screen. Would you share a screenshot of what your desktop looks like with Docky?

    Wouldnt bother with putting Docky/Gnome Do on top of unity. Still quiet slow and buggy.

    I know that this is probably really really really obvious but I only figured it out yesterday, that you can set the session on the log in screen. I know have the original set as the default and all is back to normal but with 11.04 back end.

    Win!
