Re: No more dodge windows in Unity?
Agree it looks awkward how it looks now in that pic. maybe the ubuntu button (bfb) while in the always-show mode,
could move a some pixels to the top.
like in this mockup:
of course not as big or curvy, so the rest of the elements align properly.
I also like how the transparency of the panel matches the launcher and
that it toggles to opaque only on the occasions is maximized when it needs to match the theme.
well the feature was already added (panel opacity for maximized windows toggle):
it also matches better the unity greeter.
