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.

Frankly, it wouldn't matter if he started using Qt or anything else as a toolkit or starting doing more cross-platform development. This mindset he has got himself into is now firmly deep rooted, and I can only see him digging an ever deeper hole for himself and Ubuntu.


I'm saying he should quit screwing with the interface and focus on improving the software library.

Not that I actually expect him to do anything of the sort. This is the guy that thought that covering Gnome in brown was the way to compete with Windows and OSX. Who the hell knows what he will do next.
