And I want Canonical to hit a home run with Unity-- I think they can (I think Unity is on the right track). But they need to improve the speed of the basic tools of the interface.
For example, I want to be able to hit the Dash reveal key combo (Super key, by default) plus a few characters of the application name I want, and hit enter within the matter of a split second and know that my application is being launched. There are a variety of tools on Linux that do this already, and I don't see why Unity shouldn't be able to achieve this. (This isn't an attack on Unity, but a realistic assessment: The tools need to speed up in order to not break a user's flow)

Icon size is usually in appearance settings? At least in 12.10 it was have they removed that ability?
I just slid mine down to 32 but now the right mouse click will not work on the Desktop to bring up those menu items.
