"You missed one:

"Now it's clear how the launcher being on the left works across phone,
tablet, PC and TV"

The same UI on different devices is an epic fail. Different devices has different logic of handling. The tablet is usually without mouse, the PC not. I don't care to tapping left or right, but its important and conmfortable (useable at all) to clicking on the right side, because im right-handed.

"If you look back over the long history of the bug, you'll see that we're
quite open to landing code which implements launcher movement. However,
it needs to:

 * address the hard problems that raises (i.e. it needs to work properly
for everyone, not just in a hacky way for some people)
 * be well written tested code

Nobody, you'll note, has stepped up to do that work.

Rather than insulting those who work on the project, you might want to
consider, if the feature was really that important, someone would have
stepped up to do it *properly*. This is not about feeding you vague
disinformation. This is about knowing clearly what we care about and
devoting precious time and resources to that. It would not be possible
to get ANYTHING done if we weren't disciplined about that. It's not
really possible to have a balanced conversation with anybody who has no
appreciation for that.

Now, it's very straightforward to use any number of docks - Cairo-DL and
others - to achieve the effect you want. Do you think it's socially
acceptable to go around demanding that others take care of your needs,
when you're perfectly capable of achieving it for yourself? Grow up.



Why would i need use some redundant app on my PC? I hate trash, and the duplicated apps are trash. But the "official/original" launcher is so uncustomizable...since years. lol It would turn to "don't touch distro"? (like let me think... any else non linux-based so far?)

Anyway i am not coder or developer, i'm just a man who is looking for an easy to use, reliable OS. It was formerly the Ubuntu.

By the way i cancelled to use with unity years ago. Its nice, just slow to use and can't customize. I gave now another chance to get used to unity, but can't move the launcher--->deleted the whole thing. I'm now either on gentoo, or on debian with MATE, and i am happy with that. Just sorry for official distro of ubuntu.

peace and free Tibet!
