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.

RE[3]: My take

I like the general idea, ie. provide a standardized way for controlling such things.

Apple provided it a while ago: the top screen menu. It unifies system menus and notifications with the current application's.

Even without implementing that, there could be workarounds. The current NetworkManager and volume applet could offer controls per current application too.
