Minimizing is pretty much an obsolete notion.  I don't miss the minimization button at all;  simply adjust your workflow.  Use workspaces appropriately,

Alt-tab / Alt-tick

Workspaces with many windows are much easier to manage in Shell, and movig windows between workspaces is much more integrated; so I actually use workspaces more.
