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.

Is communicating really that bad?

What I don't get in all this is why does Canonical not communicat their ideas before they impose them on their users and devs?

Are they really that afraid that another distro might release "their" idea befor them? I mean discussing something can really help in finding caveats, in finding better solutions to the problem.

No. Instead they keep quiet and then *boom* the newest thing on the block that just is incompatible to anything.

For a beginning they could have left the close- etc. buttons on the right side and discuss their idea.

All that makes Canonical look like a company that does not really want to play a part in this whole ecosystem but rather make its own thing.


I mean upstart, their notification stuff and now this. Go collaborate ffs!
