    …auto-hide the Unity launcher on the Netbook Edition (10.10) or Natty????

    According to the developer the Autohide option is for Natty. [i]"I also add the option to make the Launcher hide automatically. It will give you a wider screen space.

    Because Ubuntu 11.04 Natty is still under development, so the it might be changed in the future. Just for testing."[/i]

    Bummer! I was hoping someone could make this happen for the UNE version of Unity too. I for one, am keeping an open mind concerning Unity. I’m anxious to see how this turns out.
