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 _hate_ aero snap

Aero snap is the worst feature in Windows 7. I hate. I don't want a window to be maximized when I drag it to the top of the screen. I just want it to align with the top of the screen. I constantly have to fight it when I'm in Windows.

In KDE, I don't have this problem, because you can disable it. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find out how to do so in Windows 7.

I love how you can snap windows in place in KDE (like snapping a window to the top of the screen or to line up with an adjacent window), but maximizing is another beast entirely. There's a button for that. It's not hard to hit. In fact, it's likely faster than dragging the window to the top of the screen. Aero snap is horrific IMHO. I've never liked Gnome, so I'm not sure that I care much about what they do with Gnome 3, but the more I hear about it, the less that I want to use it.
