than the MyUnity UI.  That doesn't sound like an improvement to me...

 Disproportionate skips are a very easy way to navigate clips. If
 you're trying to get to a specific thing, you skip forward until you
 pass it, then you have the finer grained control skipping back to get
 closer to the desired spot. With a proportionate 60 second skip, at
 best you could get within 60 seconds of the desired point without
 having to remember whether you want to use shift-arrow or
 control-arrow for the finer grained control. Many commercial DVRs are
 configured with disproportionate skips today for exactly this reason.

Right, this is very useful (once you get used to it).

The only thing that could be done better is adapting to the length of a
clip; when you have 1-3 min clip, skipping forward 60 seconds by default
is way too much...

 I would like to see the following options integrated into Ubuntu 11.10 to
 make it more user friendly than any other versions.
 
 1) Ability to search within a folder, just by right clicking on the folder,
 and select search for files and folders

Would be nice.

 2) Make K3B as the default CD/DVD burning application, and if possible, add
 Blu-Ray burning as well into it. Still the application lacks with the
 feature to burn bootable CD/DVDs of any kind, so I would be most delighted
 to see that being integrated into it as well.

There are other tools than K3B, that don't require KDE, and that are
more user-friendly (IMO).

 3) Make available a single location to enter Proxy settings, and let that be
 spread throughout the system, without any interaction from the user any
 further.

+1 on that.  And it should work across working environments too (GNOME,
KDE, XFCE, LXDE, terminal, etc.).

 4) Assign a drive letter to the partitions detected by Ubuntu, rather than
 120GB partition or anything like that.

If you give your partitions a label, Ubuntu will use that.  Best use a
meaningful label...  ;)

Drive letters tend to change after changes to the hardware or when you
attach USB devices in a different order, so they are a bad idea for a
user interface.

[...]
 The reason is, most computer users are much familiar with Windows, and in
 Windows, they see a much clearer view of their data than in Linux. Because
 of drive letters, it is easier to remember where the data are located.

That's not true.  Windows always assigns C: to the boot partition, so if
you boot from another partition, C: will point to another location.  USB
devices or other swappable devices also don't always get the same drive
letter.

  1. There are key feature regressions, for example, there is no systray

 For the record, this is currently purely a design decision, not a
 technical problem. Unity does have a systray, but most applications
 are not allowed to use it. The current exception list is AFAIR Java
 applications, Skype, and Mumble.
 
 If this is a major issue, then frankly I'd rather just remove the
 whitelist and allow all old-style systray applications than dropping
 Unity by default completely. 

One problem is that there is no easy-to-use or easy-to-find way for the
user to review and whitelist (or blacklist) the applications that are
trying to use the old-style notification area, so whitelist all is the
only way not to break people's favourite applications...


BTW: I've already seen developers who include code in their application
to whitelist itself.  One reason is that currently AppIndicators lack
many features that they need (or want to use).  Some applications that
*have* an AppIndicator in Ubuntu have also lost usability  features
that users depended on (e.g. Tomboy).

 2: workspaces as contexts
 
 Workspaces doesn't currently seem very useful to me. It can be nice if
 you have windows layed out in a certain way, but other than that, I
 don't think I'll use them very much. I think they would be very much
 more useful and user friendly if the super-w didn't display windows
 from other workspaces, but was limited only to the current workspace
 like alt+tab is.

You can fix this with CCSM by changing the keybindings for the compiz
Scale plugin if you want.


  I always use workspaces as contexts. That is, I
 have a workspace where I do general stuff like surfing and chatting
 with friends for no particular purpose. I also have one workspace that
 I use when I play guitar and sing, etc, I have one for managing my
 network of physical and virtual machines and one I use for
 development. I work with different files and websites in these
 contexts so I open new instances of Nautilus and Firefox. This is
 probably the only time I open more than one instance of these
 applications since both supports tabs very well.

 For my workflow, it would be extremely useful if the launcher and
 super-w was context aware so that pressing super-1 would open only
 the Nautilus relevant to my current work and super-2 would switch to
 my relevant Firefox. That is to say that if I'm in my general context
 with Firefox and Nautilus open, then switch to a new context, pressing
 super-1 and super-2 would open new instances of those applications,
 and then later switch between those instances in this context only.
 When switching between contexts, the default browser in the context
 you switch to should be set as the one to open links. (This has been a
 problem for me for ages). Opening a link from gnome-terminal in my
 Guitar context should never result in the link being opened in my VM
 Management context, for instance. This helps me stay focused on my
 current tasks.

+1000 from me on fixing that behaviour for Firefox etc.  :)

(I think it might require more workspace-awareness by the applications
themselves and/or maybe the GUI toolkits though?)

 If you mean write to disk, then that's just a matter of adding the

I was talking about the context menu for e.g. *.iso files (burn to disk)

If Brasero is going to replace n-c-b, care should be taken to make sure
we don't lose any of this functionality.

There is a global printer settings dialog and a user-specific dialog to
set the default printer (possibly different from the system-default
printer).  I guess the print job manager could be hidden from the menus,
as it's available through its status panel icon?

[...]
 The only hurdle is that the Printing app is a tool requiring root
 privileges and the others don't. It may be (by design) that the other
 two apps were provided for non-admin users to manage their printing
 preferences and jobs. If this is the case, would it be possible to have
 the Printing app globally accessible, requiring a password only when
 some options are chosen? or even multiple printing profiles?

I understand that PolicyKit should allow this in the future.

 something that shows after going to Applications-Internet-Gaim...
 rather Gaim should just be an applet. The Evolution contact list could
 offer to give you Gaim (from an address card with a handle on a
 supported service) as well as gnome-open when opening an irc: uri, etc.

There was a telepathy applet like that (but it got replaced by empathy's

 Similarly for Tomboy. Why does the use case for an adhoc note-keeper
 involve starting a search program/recently used list before I can just
 add a damned note ? Tomboy should be a launcher or applet (doesn't much
 matter which in this case since it isn't doing anything between clicks

That's why I use the Tomboy panel applet.  :)


 It would be nice to stick the Evolution contact list on as a launcher by
 default too.
