Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Who says the open source and Free software world only copy but never innovate? Over at Canonical's design blog - you know, the company which does nothing for the Linux world *cough* - someone named Christian Giordano has shared some ideas about how Ubuntu - and therefore, the rest of the Linux world - could make use of hardware sensors to better serve its users. Pretty interesting stuff.

Indeed. Also, think about the additional eyestrain added by this. Positioning that's not pixel-perfect makes things blurry, and blurry text is hard to read. If it moves, it becomes even worse.

So, if your blurry windows constantly move as you move your head, you'll have a hard time reading what's actually written inside them, inducing much eyestrain when you could have simply grabbed your mouse and clicked the window...

Cool feature, but useless as is, and has a high annoyance potential.
