I know that Canonical won't move the Unity Launcher to the bottom since it "doesn't make sense due to screen resolutions." I get that. And PLEASE... PLEASE don't refer me to the Compiz settings for moving the Unity Launcher. It doensn't work properly and everytime I've tried messing with Compiz, I end up breaking my installation.
Here's my gripe (and I know it's not just MY gripe). The location of the Unity Launcher interferes constantly with open windows. For example... I get very frustated trying to use the back button in any web browser because more times than not, I end up unhiding the Unity Launcher and opening up the Dash instead of actually hitting the back button.
Here's my suggestion solution. Integrate (or offer the option to integrate) the Unity Launcher into the already existing Panel. Like the volume, networking, and other applets work... a user could click or just hover the cursor (or still just hit the Super key) to reveal the Unity menu. Voila! We now get even MORE screen real estate and the Unity Launcher is no longer in a VERY annoying location. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE put this in your future development plans!!
Now... Thank you for your continued work on Unity. It doesn't always get the positive recognition that it deserves, but it truly is a great Desktop Environment. The Unity development team has done a great job developing and improving a brand-new DE in such a short period of time.
