Beryl has a couple of great plugins for organising applications that have a proliferation of little windows like the gimp or kopete, or if you want to group windows associated with a project you are working on.

Normally with these types of applications, you end up "alt+tab"ing all over the show to find the right window. The grouper and scale plugins allow you to organise and find the windows you want fast.

GROUPER PLUGIN AND TABBED WINDOWS

The grouper plugin allows you to join various windows into groups, and perform actions on all the windows as one. For example, if you resize one window in a group, all windows are resized. If you move one window in the group, they all move.

Ubuntu Is Used All over the World, Reveal Initial Ubuntu 18.04 Desktop Metrics

During the development cycle of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver), Canonical announced that there would be an optional personal and system data collection tool implemented in the operating system to help them improve Ubuntu.

The data collected by Canonical to improve the Ubuntu Linux operating system contained information about Ubuntu flavor used and version, users' setups, installed software, network connectivity, OEM manufacturer, CPU family, RAM, disk size, screen resolution, GPU vendor and model, as well as users' location based on the options they choose during the installation.
