A report from pgCon 2013
Little things that matter in language design
This, please. There should be some form of visual indication of a possible action. Trying to find what one can do via various 'hidden' hot corners and/or mode keys is difficult.
Additionally, I use a multi-machine setup with synergy, so stuff like hot corners actually break my setup. Fling the mouse to the corner (edge of screen) and it goes to another screen.
Discoverability, please. Hot corners and/or alt-keys only as a clearly labeled shortcut to a menu item or other visible action.

Also there is a bad problem that happens when certain types of windows are maximed.. it will block synergy from drifting over. I had this issue with Gnome-terminal. I don't know if it is still a issue however. It has been a while since I last tried it.
