wp-admin dashboard thoughts

For 3.8 I'm looking at ways to improve the wp-admin dashboard. I'd love your help figuring out how it is currently being used. There are 5 questions below. Thanks for your help!

What portions of the dashboard do you like, and use every day?

Don't worry, we'll cover the areas you DON'T like in the next question. ;-)

Which sections of the dashboard do you never use (and think should go away)?

How often do you post with QuickPress?

What sort of modifications do you typically make to the dashboard (for yourself or for clients), and why?

If you could wave a magic wand, what types of things would you show on the dashboard?
