Re: GNOME3 Ugh! What specifically didn't work.
I right-clicked on the app title bar and selected minimize from there.
To get the app back I used Alt-Tab.
IceWM is a nice bit of software. I used it for a long time. I think
that if you want something similar to your GNOME 2 panel experience that
XFCE will probably be a reasonable choice.
I have XFCE running on this machine, on my Xubuntu DVR, and via a thumb
drive that I use on my work laptop when I don't want to lug two machines
along. I have TDE installed on a couple of other machines and I've been
playing with Unity and GNOME Shell. Perhaps I'm simply mad! ;-)
