Re: Some impressions about the current status of Unity


Unity (or better the application lens ) already supports tags or keywords
the problem is that the great majority of applications doesn't provide them
in their desktop file using the X-GNOME-Keywords parameter.
I think that adding them to the applications is a great and easy way to
contribute to the ubuntu quality.

Michael Hall, I think you should try to involve the community on this as
it's a simple task, but it can give great results!
