I want it to open in archive manager first so I can examine the files and maybe extract only a few rather than all of them, and have a right-click menu to one-step extract.

    I don't want a delete warning when I'm only moving to Trash; I don't want icons on the Open With menu and I don't want Ctrl-Alt-Backspace off by default (which sin't a papercut but was "fixed" for Jaunty under similar usability arguments).
    Sounds like the majority of what you want to do is make Gnome like KDE.

    some of these, I can see why and how they can be annoying to everybody... others, i feel like they're trying to just make certain little things more like Windows

Overall what I've seen is very constructive, and should make Ubuntu 9.10 something more polished and very nice.
    Fancy that, I've also posted on this paper cut (we agree, rename-on-click is very annoying).
