Gnome "Gnome Shell 2.91.90 was released yesterday getting some fine adjustments according to the release announcement: 'This release just about concludes user interface changes anticipated before GNOME 3.0. The only significant change we expect after this release is to add a native network indicator based on NetworkManager 0.9.' Gnome Shell 2.91.90 brings new automatic workspaces, removed minimize and maximize buttons from window titlebars, a PolicyKit authentication agent and more."

....why did they have to remove the minimise and maximise buttons? Was that really necessary?

Please, Gnome devs, at least give users the *option* of having those buttons! That is all I ask.
Surely that is not too much to ask - those buttons are *control items*, not just fripperies.

I use Gnome now (on Ubuntu) and it took a while to get used to having the buttons at the top-left instead of the top-right, but at least that is *much* better than not having them at all......

Anyway, apart from this, the appearance is very nice!
