Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu It looks like a new "locally integrated menu" will make it into Unity, starting with version 5.6.0. There's basically no information about the new locally integrated menubar, except for two bug reports which link to some custom Unity, Compiz, Metacity and Light Themes branches so to see "LIM" in action, I've compiled all these branches and here's the result. The "locally integrated menubar" can be displayed on the panel (for maximized windows) as well as in the window decoration (unmaximized windows). But it's not displayed on both in the same time.

I think the point here is that design, behavior, services and content should be decoupled from each other.

That way *anyone* could experiment aggressively with novel arrangements just by learning, for example, javascript, some markup, and css. Sound familiar? Developers *at best* are no better than other people at UX and design and there is a lot of reason to believe they are actually worse at it (disclosure: I am a developer)

Bagging on artists has to be the strangest response to the parent post I can imagine. WTF people?
