Hey all,

I've decided to take the plunge and try Unity for at least a fortnight
full time to see if I can actually function.

Two immediate annoyances.
1) Alt-F2 (10+ years of motor memory for console/workspace 2) switches
workspace, but also kicks up a modal 'Run' dialogue that i can't seem
to find how to disable.
2) No perma-visible toolbar. I really want my cpu/network/disk/mem
usage graph always in view. Also geyes
x) Clicking an application in the left bar doesn't launch the
application again (ie. multiple terminals) - Solved - middle mouse
button behaves as i want

I did a search on the list and didn't find any discussion yet so...
What tips. tricks and frustrations do you have with Unity/Gnome shell?
