I have been looking for the past few days, I need these features:
- Docking a window on any side of a desktop expands it to fit half/a quarter of the space
- Resizing and moving windows must be very easy
- Search tool that searches folders and content of files in a matter of seconds.
- Multi-monitor support
- Middle clicking has to work, for example in a browser for faster scrolling
I tried the live cd of Gnome 3 today, but apparently my radeon 4850 is not supported. Resizing windows from the sides is very bad in there. I have to aim for several seconds. The same is true for Ubuntu 10.10, (which I just tried via Wubi) They both don't support middle clicking either. Other than that, Ubuntu was actually quite nice, pretty comparable to Windows 7.
Any suggestions? Did anyone try Ubuntu 11, does it have improvements in these areas? Unfortunately reviewers /youtube videos don't go into usability issues.
