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.

I am no fan of PA, but the original statement didn't say "Linux is now superior to other systems because PA implements a brand new feature no one else has" what he said was that, using PA, Linux now has per-app volume controls. While you could technically have had this for a while now if you compiled OSS4 in to your kernel I don't know of any distributions that did and it has never been in mainline. Thus, it *is* fair to say that this is new *for Linux* and *for most.*
