Re: HUD design ideas
yes I absolutely agree with you that is for 12.04 to radical but in
generally with HUD you have the possibility.
I think it is important that the users have both possibilities. HUD
command search and traditional menu (only a other view).
I created a small picture how I imagine this.
Sorry for the bad quality but I'm no gimp genius.

1. Remove the whole menu from the Top Bar and replace it with a button.
That would be way too radical for 12.04. That won't happen, or at
least I hope so. The last thing we need now, is large and sudden
changes. What we need now, is for new options to be added, for people
to try it out, talk about them and then we see what works. Only when
we know that things work in real life, should it be used by default
and things should not be removed at the same time as something new is
added, unless it is absolutely necessary because of a conflict. And in
those cases, it shouldn't be done in a hurry.
In fact, though I love the HUD as an idea, I'm not sure I'd recommend
that it be used by default in 12.04. 2-3 months isn't that much time
to test a radical new idea, and pushing poorly tested, highly visible
things in an LTS is a gamble.
I like your ideas, and I think it would be better to wait until 12.10
to add it by default. By then it should be well tested and it could
have a more complete feature set. Of course, the decision is not mine,
but that's how I feel about it. :)
