Is there a Unity equivalent of the GNOME panel 'show desktop' applet?
So first the rant..
I don't understand how you can release an operating system without a show desktop icon installed by default. It is extremely annoying to a lot of users, especially new Ubuntu adopters. I honestly hadn't noticed since I use the keyboard shortcut (which also keeps being switched between super+D and alt+ctrl+D) but people I have convinced to use ubuntu are really pissed off since they have to minimize all the windows to access the desktop - and I can understand them. And no, they are not interested in keyboard shortcuts they will not remember.
That being said the worst thing seems to be there is no fix for this that I can find! Webupd8 posted the following post. The solution that's suggested there is quite frankly worse than nothing for people without the ability to middle click (many mice/keyboard doesn't have a middle button). I was so frustrated with it I deleted it after a few days. It's not only the 10 second wait, even after waiting it doesn't work properly.
Any ideas on how to win this confidence back from new Ubuntu users?
