That is insane... I would not use any software or desktop environment
that imposed such ludicrous and unfriendly conditions.

I agree with Charles that this is an idea that deserves to be killed -
along with its proposer - before it gets off the paper.

Just to make things clear, neither Gnome Shell nor Unity force a window to
be full-screen. While Gnome Shell does get rid of the "maximize"/"minimize"
window button, it uses dragging to and away from the top for maximizing and
minimizing. (It also adds dragging to the sides to make a window take up
half the screen.) Unity uses these same gestures, plus it keeps the
"maximize"/"minimize" button.

So both of these work very much like Windows 7, and there are no plans to
change this functionality.
