[Bug 91784] Re: "Show desktop" is confusing


"I do not think the compiz behavior is wrong, just hard to understand."

If we admit it's hard to understand, then it's practically impossible
for average users to understand, and features that are so difficult to
understand /are/ wrong when they're included in Ubuntu, even if their
developers intended the features to be that way. The Compiz Show Desktop
plugin is nice, but would require a bit more planning and development
(it doesn't play nice with the window list). Here's a simple set of
rules that the Show Desktop button should observe.

when ("Show Desktop" is clicked):
    if (all windows are minimized):
        unminimize all windows
        minimize all windows

The visual indication of a modal state should also be removed.

** Summary changed:

- "Show desktop" is confusing
+ The modal behavior of "Show Desktop" is confusing
