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

Definitely against this proposal/mockup, as it makes the shell more complicated, while the whole point is to have it optimally simple. Secondly an item contains less information than a window preview. If any interface like this has to be created, I would suggest a minimization closet which acts like a workspace showing all minimized windows (but which opens the window in its original window once you click on it).
 Still I don't think there is any reason to hide windows from the gnome-shell, as I suggested before, removing the minimization button and leaving only a super+h shortcut (which doesn't hide the window from the shell) should be more than enough?

and reduced it to an icon somewhere… maybe above the desktop overview.

Here are some quick mockups. I have it showing a popup preview - sort of Windows 7 style, but now that I think about it, it might work better to do something more like when you right click a running program (show only that window or maybe all minimized windows for that application in the overview, depending on how we'd handle multiple windows...).
