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.

For the record, I use window shading daily, much more than I minimize. If I double click the title bar, the window will "roll up". (that's what you'r talking about, right?)

I find it nicer than minimizing. It (almost) removes the window so I can see behind it, and requires a lot less mouse movement than minimize, go to the taskbar, restore.

It's a feature I miss when I use a user interface that doesn't have it.
