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.

drivers work stable enough with Mutter in time for fall, millions of NVidia owners will be greeted with the classic Gnome 2.x desktop instead of the new Gnome 3.0 Shell.


Did we learn nothing at all from the blunders with KDE4's birthing process? The *last* thing I want to see distros do is rush out with Gnome 3.0 as the default just because it's shiny and new.

As for the subject at hand, my mind immediately goes to netbooks as the likely inspiration for this.
