Nono this is not another Unity hate thread, but more of a list of things I really wish unity would have so I could use it on a more regular basis instead of hopping between KDE, Cinnamon, unity and the like.
So here is my personal list of things that I would like to see in Unity in the future:
3: Better Multi window management:
This is a huge weakness in unity, sure tabs are taking over in most apps but in some apps you cant help but have multiple windows such as firefox or libreoffice.
Alt+tab might be viable but I really wish that unity would adapt the behavior of the Windows superbar in its multi window management.
2: Global menubar/ window button fixes:
Its no secret that the global menubar in unity needs some major work as do the window buttons.
The auto hide idea is terrible for new users, while us older users can adjust to it when coming from windows its a major issue that most users have issue with.
The timeout seriously needs work, or have the window buttons visible at all times except when no window or the dash is open.
Or have an indicator of where the menus are supposed to be.
I also wish that minimised windows did not use the global menubar thus being more in tune to the mac user.
1: The movable launcher
Never going to happen I know but I can dream cant I?
Curing at least two of these things I think will help Unity in the end and 2 and 3 being the more plausbile i dont think I am being unreasonable
Of course things like better stability will come over time, Unity is still finicky in places.
What is your take?
Also modes dont bundle this with one of the unity threads as I do think this thread is legit as a standalone.
