Bug Description

Binary package hint: unity

Compiz based Unity should combine scale and expo.

In Mutter based Unity (Ubuntu 10.10) there is a nice effect when showing workspaces. The Windows on each Workspace are shown side by side.
The Compiz Version of Unity only uses Expo to show the workspaces, but the windows stays as they are. Expo and Scale should be combined to get the same effect as in Mutter.

I support that idea.
That is probably the only this i miss the most from mutter Unity.

Thanks for reporting this idea and help to make ubuntu better.

The current implementation is just a first version, designers are thinking about it.

There is a question about this on askubuntu: http://askubuntu.com/questions/24449/compiz-how-to-combine-scale-and-expo-like-in-unity-with-mutter

Maybe mark the status as "wishlist"?

That question led to this bug report, and one of the answers:
"I'm going to find a way to combine the two, but we have more important things to focus on right now (stability etc)"
was written by Sam Spilsbury (unity compiz developer & canonical employee).

I agree this should be marked as wishlist.
