I don't know if I saw this minimize effect in ubuntu but definitely have seen it on other nix systems.

It's basically a little button in the menu bar that when clicked, "minimizes" the window so that only the menubar shows. Really love this feature and was wondering if anyone knew the name of it or how to get it working on ubuntu.
