Fwd: Is the Minimize button still useful with gnome-shell ?

Though I defintely agree that a minimize button might not be necessary anymore, I got to disagree that the collapse option would be better. Something which might be worth considering is removing the button alltogether and only add a cmd/ctrl+h option (super+hide) which hides the window from view and is only visible in the gnome-shell, but that would depend on how many people actually still use the minimizing option.

I've started to play with the very promising gnome-shell and, at first, I was quite confused when I minimized a window and saw it disappeared around the Activities label without any clue to restore it back !

Then I remembered that gnome-shell is all about using several workspaces and I decided to leave my habit of working with only one workspace (ten years of MS Windows practice is bound to take its toll) and started to organize my windows into several workspaces. Half an hour later, I was very comfortable with it.

Hence my (open) question : Is the Minimize button still useful with gnome-shell ? Wouldn't it be more in sync with gnome-shell to have instead a collapse behind the title bar behavior as in emerald (double click on the title bar) ?
