The Launchpad page for the desktop-oriented version of Unity lists the following features separating it from the netbook version:

  • A floating Unity Dash that can be moved to all edges of the screen
  • Floating, overlapping windows with their title bars and controls on them, not on the top panel
  • The home screen consolidated into a simple pop-down menu that extends down from the top left of the screen and allows you access to your programs and desktop search

I have some trouble picturing these, are there available mockups somewhere that could help us get an idea?

Are there actually plans to create a desktop-orientated unity? – Lightbreeze Oct 19 '11 at 2:48
That Launchpad page, like this question, seem to be a bit out of date. Last I've heard, Unity was intended to be the same across all machines regardless of form factor. Perhaps this question is too localized? – Christopher Kyle Horton Oct 19 '11 at 3:00

No not yet. I'm sure we'll see some mockups, if not runnable code, in the coming month or so though.
