Ok, after my upgrade to 11.10 and toying around with the new Unity, I am now trying out GNOME Shell. I really like the dash in GNOME Shell (when you press super). It feels I can get quick access to anything in my system.
What is not obvious to me:
- how can I add a launcher to my favorites?
- how can I open a second instance of an application from my favorites? (I tried the scroll-wheel click, but it opens a second instance of the application in another workspace)
- is there a list of shortcuts somewhere (as there is for unity)?
I did have a look at the documentation at http://gnome.org, but that was a bit meager.
