Bug Description


This is not a pure bug, but an idea to made life of lot of people simpler. More of that I'm not sure this is more related to Gnome Terminal than Unity). But it's for me an "ergonomy" bug. I explain :

In my job I have to use Windows terminal a lot. As I do with 'term' in unity, to open it I usually press "Windows / Super" Key and enter 'CMD'. Here is the "problem" : each time (very often) I come back on Ubuntu I try to search 'CMD' in the dash to open gnome-terminal. Of course : no result ! The idea is to have Gnome terminal (and probably other terminal app installed on the system) being found when searching cmd. This would avoid people like me to every time make the mistake, and newcomers to Ubuntu (student in Network/Telecoms/Programming...) would find what they search instantly what they search : better first impression of being "home" when first days on the system.
