    I have tried many different GUI and I keep coming back to Unity because I like the built-in features.

It would be nice if there is a more flexible way to exclude and include folders from local searches too. e.g in 13.10 it is silly that even access to system folders like /etc via the terminal shows up in the dash. I can't exclude the whole file system obviously and it would be absurd to have to exclude each sub directory other than /home manually, there should be an option like exclude x except for subdirectory y of x. Dash search is nice and powerful but definitely needs some fine tuning.
    A lot of that fine-tuning can be done through dconf. My home lens always shows applications, then files, then Tomboy notes, then reference items, and nothing else. It's incredibly useful and surpasses Synapse now. That wouldn't be the most useful set of returns for another user, but that's why we have options. = ) What'd be nice is a GUI tool to twiddle those dials a little more conveniently.

    Bump.

    I'd really like someone to disagree with me about this so I can argue about it. I've just destroyed someone's pride of ownership in a new Windows 8 PC by showing them the search screen and how useful it can be, and then showing them mine. = P

    Aren't you bit old for playing "I'll show you mine if you'll show me yours"?

    She was new to Windows 8. It was "I'll show you yours, then I'll show you mine." But the sentiment was roughly the same. = )

    so then ...

    @johnluke728 - you were saying? Now that the Unity hate has cooled down, how do you feel about the WM? - appears not, I think also there is someone in a cave somewhere who absolutely hates Gnome2 and wants to go back.

    The moral of the story seems to be - there will always be someone who doesn't like whatever it is that's the topic of conversation.

    After 2 months this thread has gotten exactly where all the other Gnome2/Unity threads have - we have an overabundance of Ouroboros's here. I'm going to let this one rest now.

    Thanks for the comments everyone.
