Re: Some impressions about the current status of Unity


The Dash is more like a search engine than a directory listing. Think of it like Google. You don't go to Google for a list of websites by category.

What you want is a way to browse installed applications, not find specific applications. This isn't what the Dash is designed for.

Perhaps it would be better to discuss providing a different method of browsing applications, rather than trying to change the nature of the Dash to make it behave like something it isn't.

better browsing (like list view):


This bug is only about having a different , more compact , presentation.
But it says nothing about an efficient category-based navigation.
