Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Common sense has prevailed (see bold text)! "The final decision on window controls for 10.04 LTS is as follows: the window controls will remain on the left, however the order will change to be (from left) close, minimize, maximise. The decision is based on the view that putting the close button in the corner will be most familiar to many users, even if the particular choice of corner is not."

Most users do not change default settings, either because they don't care or because they don't know how to. Do me a favor and walk into any real office. Count how many people have that prairie + blue sky picture set as their Windows XP background.
There is a reason this is a big fuss. It may seem to be a really dumb thing for most OSNews readers, but that is because we are not most users. Most users do not adapt well to change.
