I read here that these will be some of the features of the Desktop version of Unity:
- A floating Unity Dash that can be moved to all edges of the screen.
- Floating, overlapping windows with their title bars and controls on them, not on the top panel.
- The home screen consolidated into a simple pop-down menu that extends down from the top left of the screen and allows you access to your programs and desktop search.
I'm not sure how closely these points represent the plans for Unity on the desktop. When it talks about a floating Dash, does it mean the Launcher? As far as I know the dash is fullscreen so, how could it be moved to the edges? Also, why move it if it closes as soon as you choose an item? If it means the Launcher, do you plan to allow moving it to all edges?
Isn't floating, overlapping windows with their title bars and controls on them what we always had? also, Desktop-Unity is supposed to keep using the global menu so, doesn't that contradict the specification?
Finally, supposing "the home screen" means the dash, do you plan to make it not-fullscreen?
