Ok, we're going a bit offtopic here, but it's interesting nevertheless.
I'm not sure I like it, it has some interesting idea, but I find it
quite far from usable (ok, I've not tried it yet, just judging from the
videos, so I'm trying to hold by feelings on that for now).
What I don't understand, is why not get rid of the panel bar at this
point, the shell may be called by moving to some border, using a special
key/mouse combination, or via the window border (which is another
"obsolete" technology, but could serve a little more than just closing
applications at this point).
Before this conversation gets too far off topic, let me remind
everyone that GNOME Shell uses an open development process. The
developers have their own mailing list here:
If you have questions or constructive input about GNOME Shell, it
belongs on that list. Thanks!
