"Many users are excited about the idea of the new
'wingpanel', a floating, panel-replacement which floats at the top
right hand corner of the screen and holds the indicator applets,
application indicators and session indicators. It saves the
vertical space by floating but still be visible at all the time.
The best part is the top right hand corner at least in ubuntu is
one of the least used space and thus an excellent choice,
location-wise, in my humble opinion.
"Currently the wingpanel is still alpha quality. But those who
wants to emulate this behavior in the existing gnome panel, can do
it without much difficulty."
