Yes, typing a few letters once the applications show does find
applications, if you know their name. To know you have to press alt-f1
somebody has to tell you. And to know I can type names, I had to read it in
instructions. Not intuitive, then.
No, you do not need to know the name. The overview uses meta-data about
the application. I type "music" and there are all the media players.
Menus that are browsable with the keyboard as well. A
time proved design!
Yes. And that is exactly what GNOME Shell overview provides.
I don't see a menu of applications anywhere, except in fallback mode.
Correct. Menus are clunky, slow, and hard to navigate. But menus are
available as extensions.
I'm used to have a command line applet on which I
type the name of the
apps, or choose a previous entry. I can not add that applet, I don't know
how to add applets to the panel.
Alt-F2 At least in GNOME-Shell that brings up a
command line tool;
which also supports history. I use this all the time to run commands
Me to, but is not the same.
Correct, it is different.
I have two apps running now, one a terminal and
another yelp. The terminal
is not listed in the bar. That is also confusing.
There is a shell extension for a
window-list; although I fail to
understand the point. The user knows what applications they opened.
Not when they
are dozens. I want to click on the bar and select the correct
xterm, for example.
Vastly superior; the thumbnail actually lets me know which one I want
verses "xterm" 5 fimes.
I have only two workspaces, and I have not seen yet
how to add more (I work
with 12 in this machine running G2).
In shell they are allocated dynamically. You
always have 1 more [an
empty one]. Just go down and a new one will get created. You don't
have to "add more", it just happens
Ah, all right. But I want then down
and right, in a matrix of 3*4.
GNOME3 doesn't do that.
