Gnome Have you ever been bitten by accidentally loading multiple instances of the same application in GNOME? When you click on the launcher of an already-running application in GNOME, it will load up another instance of the same application, instead of switching to the already running one. This can lead to bugs and other unforeseen behaviour, which of course isn't desirable. In GNOME 3, this issue has been resolved.

Why can't they just provide a checkbox for each launcher's properties, where you select the behavior individually?

Because it's GNOME that we're talking about here, remember? Too many options might confuse our userbase... ^_^

And going back on-topic, I will side with the majority: that should be left to the application to decide, not the application launcher.
