Or how some programs when minimized would just disappaer they wouldn't be in the dock or the system tray.
IIRC the multi-monitor issues are Gnome 3's fault, since Unity is essentially just another shell for Gnome 3. That's how I remember it, at least. Either way, Gnome 3 multi-monitor support is crap and there doesn't seem to be a lot of interest in fixing it and garble garble ranty rant am I good at staying on topic.
Anyway, I hope this turns out great. Anyone know if this will come with Fedora 17? I used Gnome 3 for Fedora 15, but after that experience and in general the direction Gnome is heading I don't think I'll be using it for a while. I've been using KDE and quite like it, but I still find it quite sluggish and even glitchy at times (though most bugs that pestered me for the first month or so after installing F16 seem to have vanished with updates).
