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.

If you go to the top-right for volume ... why not just use the global volume control?

Seriously, this is a stupid question: you've never wanted to adjust the volume your music plays at while still having all your other audio sources play at the same volume as before?


Ah, but doesn't the global volume mixer include support for each application, thus negating the need for the windicator?
