    Dashboard functionality of KDE comes to mind. (Ctrl-F12)
    Most distros don't fold applications into icons on taskbar (aka Windows 7 style).
    Icon only task manager available as an option in KDE.
    Some do not even have search functionality on start menu.
    Modern versions of KDE, Gnome , Unity..etc all have search. (for kde, windows 7 like and for the other two windows 8 like)

    I only mention KDE because that is what I've been using for a few years.
    But I'm sure any DE/WM with a sizeable userbase has those as some sort of option, application or plugin.

    Well, KDE certainly "sounds" nice if has those features, but I'm sure there will be lots of stuff I'll complain about anyway. But, I guess I can try it when I have to use a Linux distro next. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?

    Best of luck.
    Don't give up just becasue the defaults are somewhat bland and sometimes stupid.

    Don't hold your breath. I can't picture Elysia in front of a Linux screen. And I love fantasy books.

    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Sometimes I just have to use those pesky things. But it's not out of love. You are right about that.
