Here is one. It is more a gnome bug but I'll post here for discussion.

* Desktop accommodate much less icons than XP.

With a screen resolution 1280x800, in gnome the desktop can only
contain 72 icons while in Windows XP it can do 170 icons i.e XP is
2.36 times as efficient as gnome in using desktop real estate.

The situation in gnome becomes much worse when you have icons with
long title. This bug has been filed over 4 years ago. I currently have
46 icons on my desktop and they have taken 7/8 of the desktop.

I think this compromises user's productivity.
