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've already moved from Ubuntu 9.04 to Fedora 13 and Sidux, mainly over concerns about the suspiciously-like-a-crappy-iphone-app-store application manager they where trying to push over good old Synaptic. At this point, I'm glad I got out when I did.

I probably shouldn't say this, but... this is where we Freetards really start to feel vindicated. If one distributor becomes unreliable or abusive, then there are dozens of other distributors we can switch to, with little effort or loss. We're not tied to the deck of a sinking ship.
