I have seen the way you can respond to messages in a nice quick way in Gnome-Shell with a message window popping out from the bottom. How can this be applied in Unity for a window to pop up and just quickly click on it to respond to the user.

Why don't you use GNOME Shell instead of Unity? – Nyamiou The Galeanthrope Oct 19 '11 at 1:11
Wouldn't that just defeat the purpose of the question?. What would had happened if I asked "How to play windows games on Linux" ^^. – Luis Alvarado Oct 19 '11 at 2:54

Currently there is no way to accomplish this. It may be possible to write an application that replicates the functionality however.
