Gnome "Gnome Shell 2.91.90 was released yesterday getting some fine adjustments according to the release announcement: 'This release just about concludes user interface changes anticipated before GNOME 3.0. The only significant change we expect after this release is to add a native network indicator based on NetworkManager 0.9.' Gnome Shell 2.91.90 brings new automatic workspaces, removed minimize and maximize buttons from window titlebars, a PolicyKit authentication agent and more."

So I take it that an action is necessary?

If moving your mouse cursor counts as a action, sure. If you don't want to do that, writing a extension to show a window list is fairly trivial in javascript.

You aren't only losing the little time it takes to move your mouse to the left, you are also losing the overall picture of your current activities.

But, whatever ... you've got to get inline with the big boys (OS X, Win7) and the colorful icons are soooo pretty.

The problem is not if it's possible or easy to find an workaround ... it's promoting the wrong defaults thus hindering usability for the unwashed masses who don't bother with configuration ...
