Bug Description

This is my opinion how alt+tab should looks like in ubuntu unity. Default alt+tab is too big, it doesn't look professional for me and for power users every pixels meter, so I was looking for solution, and found it. In unity source code->/build/unity-4.24.0/plugins/unityshell/src/SwitcherView.cpp I changed few variables to this:

border_size = 35
flat_spacing = 7
icon_size = 96
minimum_spacing = 7
title_size = 120
vertiacal_size = tile_size + 70

In attachment is screenshot of my alt-tab switcher.

I just fixed few bugs with text in alt-tab switcher.
Now variables in SwitcherView.cpp have values:

 border_size = 30;
 flat_spacing = 5;
 icon_size = 96;
 minimum_spacing = 5;
 tile_size = 120;
 vertical_size = tile_size + 70;
 text_size = 15;

and in 780 line of code
text_view_->SetBaseY(background_geo.y + background_geo.height - 40);

I hope so you will change this values and make it default in ubuntu unity.

Thanks
Jasmin
