So has this been implemented.
"GNOME Shell Window Buttons extension" is out!
See > "Get Unity-Like Window Buttons On The Top GNOME Shell Bar"
I like there are 'Window Applets (Window Buttons)' and 'Appmenu' on the left side of top panel when application window is maximized.
Actually I use 'Lisa with XFCE' now, and there is 'Indicator Appmenu Plugin' on the left side of top panel.
I myself hope 'Xfce Window Applets Plugin' would be developed someday.
Sorry for my comments which is not concerned with " 'Window Applets' on the top panel of GNOME3 ".
I really don't care for the new release myself.
I can see potential but as it stands its so unrefined. I fail to see the purpose to make an early release such as this. Yes, I realize its an RC but understanding that MINT is a superior distro to others because of the polish and the user-friendly interface. "Lisa" does not have that look and feel that MINT so produces for its users.
Question remains. Is it a mistake?
Now to transform the distro into anything usable one has to have the ability to code. NO! Not for me.
Lets get real. We were waiting and hoping and looking forward to install a bright shiny new OS, one that our desktop didn't look like over crowded with icons and one that had the functionality of Gnome.
MATE is a work in progress and will continue however it isn't ready to go the distance yet.
I think the top panel should just be removed or at least removable. My OS philosophy is that if you can't customize it, you shouldn't use it!
Have You read the comments for “Linux Mint 12 preview”?
It is evident that a lot of users are dissatisfied with the idea of not being able to remove the top panel. Even Clem said that "The top panel is a limitation from Gnome 3"
Do You have any arguments supporting Your theory that the problem exists only for me?
This is a solution to a problem that doesn't seem to exist except maybe for you. When Mint 12 is available, users will be able to make up their own minds.
