wall
its elementary os
gnome panel
slingshot
cairo dock

docky unfortunately lacks one very important feature which is the ability to switch between instances or windows of the same app. bad bad bad. un-usable when your dock is your window management and when cairo dock does have this functionality. even Windows XP had "taskbar grouping" ;)

oh, i'd also like to take this opportunity to bitch about unity. don't like it. i couldn't launch a damn thing. like, i looked at it and looked at it again and intuitively...nothing. it needs work which is why i think its safe to say Natty sucks! crap. give me a "special" person version with gtk+3 and gnome-panel plz

Looks cool man.. That same thing annoyed the hell out of me too with Cairo dock, i guess they improved it now - it still looks the best! I don't like this Unity launcher thing neither, it's like a full screen stacks with a search feature? Right? Does seem that it's being different for the sake of it, like why not just improve one of the docks? I do wonder why they don't chose Cairo or AWN as the system default, it's the first thing most people install. I don't like this 'creeping' towards so many iOS features in desktop OS. What you think?

Yeah i know what you mean. I don't like this transition to iOS type operating systems. The idea is to limit our access, to get us used to the idea of not looking into the file system - i think. Did you see the news about iPhone tracking journeys etc? Well if we had no access to the file system, those guys wouldn't have found that tracking file..

I think you get what i mean.

sure. it also pretty much wins the war on file sharing. the kids in ten years won't be taught the same old basic file management skills. open the app, it'll automatically handle the files for you. pay 25cents to export to email or cloud.

i did. its fun, especially browsing the web. it is no doubt the fastest way to browse the web. but that's mostly it. watch netflix, google, read. advanced functions, no. its basically an expensive ass toy.

I know it's good, a few people i know have one.. wasn't really knocking it - it's just funny how we're seduced into the system they want to implement. 'They' being the ones who would profit from cloud based storage. The two things i didn't like about iPad 1 were the fact you gotta sync it to transfer stuff, plus when holding it for ages it gives you back-ache. iPad 2 is smaller though so.. one down!

It's like trying to explain to someone about something they've never experienced -- meaning that in the future, 'if' we had no local storage capacity on a lappy, but never had it to begin with -- why would we miss it!?

That fucking sucks huh! :D
