Frankendesktop: My Gothic desktop fantasy

Filed under
Software

Over the course of the day, I have to hop between various desktops. That experience set me wondering what a desktop would look like if it were assembled from all the favourite features that I encounter daily. Of course, it's pure fantasy. But just in case, somewhere on the planet, a team of developers is trying to create the ideal desktop, here's a roadmap that they might like to follow.

1. Gnome 3 Dash

Although it's not really had time to prove itself, the Gnome 3 Dash — the bar where running applications and favourites are listed — is an excellent tool. It's smooth, efficient, attractive and highly flexible. When I first encountered this concept, I was sceptical. Then, Unity Ubuntu made me concerned about my preferred desktop. But then Gnome 3 showed the right way to do things — and the Dash is part of that brilliant design.
