I've been giving 10.10 a spin on my netbook and it comes with Unity pre-enabled. Are there any equivalents to the plugins I use on full GNOME desktop, namely show all windows and show all windows on all workspaces? I can't seem to access anything other than keyboard shortcuts which don't list those operations.

I don't think there is, but 11.04 Unity does use Compiz, and has that feature.

Anyway to trigger the workspace view with a keyboard shortcut? That's sort of the view I find useful. – stsquad Feb 27 '11 at 15:23
It's Super-e, same as usual. – Vallery Feb 28 '11 at 3:44
Odd - Super-e for me just numbers the entries on the left bar. None of the entries in "Keyboard Shortcuts" have Super prefixes. – stsquad Feb 28 '11 at 8:35
I said it's coming in 11.04. There's nothing like it in 10.10, I'm afraid. – Vallery Mar 3 '11 at 1:14
Apologies - I missed the context. – stsquad Mar 3 '11 at 11:36

You can install CompizConfig and then enable the Scale Plugin.
