Well, I was talking about Gnome 2. About how minimization used to give my mom hell, and how after minimizing she would press the launcher again, expecting to get her previous window back.
Absolutely not. I would do it for Banshee, Rhythmbox, Transmission,
Evolution and Empathy.
That's funny, because Firefox was precisely the app she had trouble with. Basically because it was the one she always used.
Your solution would therefore do nothing to improve the situation for her. Rather than hand-picking the particular apps we want to correct, I think it's better to use a system where no application at all will cause those problems.
This problem that your mom experienced with GNOME 2 is orthogonal to the issue of minimization, and is one that GNOME Shell has already solved. If a user launches an already running application from the dock, the running instance is presented to the user, whether it is minimized or in some other obscured state.
