Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Remember how Mark Shuttleworth justified moving the window titlebar widgets to the left by claiming the space freed up on the right side could now be used for something else? On his blog, Shuttleworth unveiled what, exactly, Ubuntu's plans are: window indicators, or 'windicators'. In a nutshell, it comes down to having a tray area in every window.

Because I read this, and I, who don't use Linux regularly except for server type stuff, think this looks real intriguing. It will at least begin to put a strong personality stamp on Ubuntu and help the GUI stand out a bit from the crowd.

Right now, Gnome still feels like Windows Generic with poorly organized menus, large amateurish fonts, and broken/incomprehensible hardware issues.

The new theme does help though.
