Re: Unity on dual monitors
Granted, but come on... a UI for desktop/business use that deletes a basic navigable menu to launch office software? The "unity button" in the top left should launch a condensed version of the Gnome2 launcher menu, instead it gives users a glorified search function and a series of huge blocky buttons that mean very little to those who aren't already familiar with what they represent.

To put it simply: the fastest way to launch an application in a graphical UI should not be to search for it using the keyboard! If Canonical is going to keep Unity around, it needs to be SIGNIFICANTLY improved prior to Oneiric, and the basic "hunt and click" user paradigm restored to the minimum usability that was present in Maverick.
