Good points, William. Like you, I like the GS-design, and its
non-intrusiveness. There are a couple of things that don't work so well -
yet. Alt-tabbing (+ alt-down) works well most of the time, but I found some
issues with it.

First, I only found out about the arrow-down after reading the
cheat-sheet -- I guess it's not intuitive for all user.

Second, alt-tabbing + alt-down does not work very well when you have a bunch
of terminal windows -- I've found it quite hard to find the right one. This is
a bit easier in the metacity-world.

Anyway, overall, I like where the gnome-shell team is taking us -- keep up the
good work!
