Moving my mouse over the Unity launcher feels like I'm moving my mouse over the desktop wallpaper. Lifeless. Will the developers ever consider animating the launcher so that the mouse experience is a bit enhanced? I'm not here to give ideas, but even if the icons increased in size on a mouse-over event, would be a better than nothing. Or changed colour. Or something.
It's the attention to detail that puts Apple in the forefront of aesthetics. I'd like Ubuntu to be at the forefront and, while I'm thrilled at where it's headed, something as rudimentary as touch-and-feel should be included in the interface.
