Bug description:

  This is not a pure bug, but an idea to made life of lot of people
  simpler. More of that I'm not sure this is more related to Gnome
  Terminal than Unity). But it's for me an "ergonomy" bug. I explain :

  In my job I have to use Windows terminal a lot. As I do with 'term' in
  unity, to open it I usually press "Windows / Super" Key and enter
  'CMD'. Here is the "problem" : each time (very often) I come back on
  Ubuntu I try to search 'CMD' in the dash to open gnome-terminal. Of
  course : no result ! The idea is to have Gnome terminal (and probably
  other terminal app installed on the system) being found when searching
  cmd. This would avoid people like me to every time make the mistake,
  and newcomers to Ubuntu (student in Network/Telecoms/Programming...)
  would find what they search instantly what they search : better first
  impression of being "home" when first days on the system.
