About this two applets, in an user point of view, i think that the name
of showdesktop is a little confusing.
Why not using showDashBoard instead which reflect more the action of the
Same thing for the icon...
Perhaps we could find an other icon for showDashBoard and attribute the
actual icon of showDashBoard to minimize-all (the actual minimize-all is
not very pretty...) ?!
The ideal for clarity will to rename minimize-all to showDesktop, and
showDesktop to showDashboard.
I have read that in a usability point of view aaron is very attached at
the concept of Dashboard and i think that the both applet are useful and
don't have the same object.
If i just want to minimize all my windows to profit of my wallpaper or i
don't want that someone see what i'm doing minimize all is great.
if i want to rapidly profit of the functionalities of my plamoid
showDashBoard applet seems to be very useful !
sorry for my poor english
