I would also like to see pinning to the taskbar become a thing. It's annoying enough that the Whisker Menu is opened with non-standard keys, but then you can't even use the taskbar as a dock?
@brandon you can change both of those things. There is a keyboard shortcut manager, as well as the ability to add launchers to the dock
@blaubachn I'm able to figure out how to change the keyboard shortcut, but I can't seem to find a proper launcher that does something similar to the windows superbar
@brandon Xfce has xfce4-appfinder which I personally like. It's not quite the same as windows superbar.
@rghvdberg Looks pretty good but gosh I feel bad for anyone visually impaired visiting that website
@blaubachn making the super key as the whisker menu is a problem now though. I can't snap my windows anymore
@brandon Yeah, I usually do super+<another key>. Lately I've been using super+d since that's the default i3 config, and I've been using i3 a bit.
@brandon Or if you are running xubuntu, i believe xfce4-appfinder might be mapped to super+r by default
@brandon just use Mate and be done with it.
@kev but does mate have a searchable start menu?
@brandon it does. I use UbuntuMATE and super key then <search term> then enter works just fine.
