[@ "The Ubuntu Desktop" chapter authors]
As we are covering the new environment of Ubuntu, Unity, we should add
whatever is relevant to the section that we are working on. We can't simply
make some changes to the sentences so as to make sense with Unity, we have
to cover the whole new environment (Dash, Launcher, the top panel=>menu of a
running programme). So co-authors write for any part of the new environment
that is relevant to the section you chose, and if you need extra help just
shout :). Although the above may sound just reasonable and not worthy enough
to mention, i do mention them because the changes, actually Unity, makes the
chapter of 10.10 totally outdated, thus the existing sections don't have
clear boundaries.

ps1: In my section i covered Launcher, it was necessary for me to continue
writing for my section. Since Launcher is a key component of the new
environment we must move it to the first section of the chapter,
"Understanding the desktop", so as to achieve the consistency of chapter.

ps2: It seems to me that the first section of the chapter, "Understanding
the desktop", needs the most work. If the author of it needs extra help or
if any author needs a second hand, just let me know what can i do :).

Keep up the good job all :)
See you tomorrow
