Bug description:
  Keyboard shortcut to minimise all windows required.


  Ubuntu used to have a button on the bottom left corner of the screen
  that minimised all windows. This button was equivalent to a button
  that used to exist in MS Windows prior to the advent of Vista/Windows
  7. In Unity this button has been removed, however a 'minimise all'
  function is still useful to allow users to go directly to their

  Competitive analysis:

  Minimise all windows functionality in other operating systems.

  Windows 2000 & Windows XP: Button on desktop and "Windows Logo+D" key combination
  Window 7: "Windows Logo + D" key combination only
  OSX: "Option-Command-M" Key combination only

  Change request:

  - Create a small application that when clicked minimises all windows.
  Users who would like a 'minimise all windows' button can then add this
  application to their launcher. This app will not be in the Launcher
  by default.
