Maybe it will be in the sidebar, but I want a reminder of the apps I
already have open. Sometimes, I open something then minimize it -- not
close it -- because I'm going to come back and finish it. When it's
completely invisible, that little bit of reminder is gone.
While we're on the subject (or just changing it a bit), I'd like to be
able to set up "favorite" apps that I want quick access to from the
application menu. I know it's the same number of clicks, but I find it
faster to find an app from the application menu on the current Gnome
desktop than I do with gnome-shell. It's probably because (1) it's not
white on black and (2) I haven't shifted my view of the desktop to an
all window preview. In this scenario, seeing all open windows is a
distraction, not an advantage.
