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.

The new dark theme is gorgeous indeed.

As Tanner Helland said some months ago, a view I completely agreed with back then:


Take a look at Apple’s “Get a Mac” frontpage. What’s the first line?

“It’s gorgeous. Inside and out.”

Could the same be said of Ubuntu? Not with a straight face.

Well, now it could!

Fun fact: googling for "ubuntu mac gorgeous straight face" to find the exact quote, the first link was osnews.

Something else. Anyone knows what is the rationale behind aligning the window title to the left of the titlebar? I think it looked cleaner on the center.
