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.

This is really painful. Interesting post here by the CTO of Ubuntu: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2010/04/canonical-cto-matt-zimmerman-tal...

"…the decision to move the window buttons was made by Mark Shuttleworth. He explained that he wanted this in order to be able to use the space on the right side of the window for other things in the future. There have been many well-considered objections to this, both from users and from Ubuntu contributors, but he has decided to press ahead with the change anyway."

We have many dictators in the part of the real world I live in; we don't need one in the world of Ubuntu.
