Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Canonical has unveiled a complete branding overhaul, redesigning everything from the Ubuntu website to its logos and marketing material. However, what interests me more are the new Gtk+ themes, and even then, I'm not interested in the colour choices and the like. No - what stood out to me right away was not the theme itself - but the placement of the titlebar widgets.

This is sad, really. We have had over 10 iterations of Ubuntu and the dawn of Linux on the general desktop is nowhere in sight.

Consider for a moment if Ubuntu had started off with KDE as the default desktop! For the single reason that its default layout kind-of looks like Windows, along with Canonical's excellent customisation, we would have had many more converts over to Linux than now where we are blatantly copying Apple, right from the icons in the panel to, now, window buttons on the left!!

With each version, Kubuntu is more or less left to fend on its own. The funny part is that of all the derivatives and alternatives of Ubunutu, the word "kubuntu" happens to be an actual word! Others are all mashes of the word ubuntu.
