Gnome I have to admit I've been struggling with this one for a while, most importantly because I haven't used GNOME 3 yet; I'm setting up my own little company right now, so time's a little short. As such, all I can do here is cover the arguments given - which, in my book, have both their strong as well as their weak points. Yes, GNOME 3 will not have buttons for minimising or maximising windows.

I’m pretty sure that the commenter to whom you’re replying doesn’t need title bars.

I’m pretty sure that the comment to which you’re responding isn’t suggesting that other people don’t title bars simply because this one person doesn’t need them. Moreover, I’m pretty sure that the commenter wasn’t even trying to imply that either. Rather, that commenter was responding to the inquiry “On what planet does this make sense?”, and I’m sure that the take away message from his comment is “mine”.

Moreover, I think that the principle that you’re invoking, while a good one, has been applied to the wrong ancestor in this threat. I’m pretty sure that the parent commenter was implying that this made no sense to him and therefore shouldn’t make sense to anybody. If I’m right, then you’re principled condemnation was ironically misplaced. If I’m wrong, then you’re response was altogether unwarranted. However, thank you for reminding us to be sensible.
