Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Canonical has today publicly confirmed that they are working on a new cross-platform displayer server for Ubuntu. Called 'Mir', the X Window Server replacement is tasked with 'enabling development of the next generation Unity'. Which, in yet another about-turn, is to be rebuilt in Qt/QML." It'll be used for all Ubuntu variants (phone, tablet, desktop), and the first version will be released come May.

Right Mouse buttons have never been particularly discoverable, in my own analytics

This is a typical response from developers. They look at various statistics and decide 'well, since 90% of people aren't using this, we might as well take it out', thereby alienating the other 10%.

Personally, I think there's a way to please both camps with the same product, but nobody seems to even be making an attempt these days. Even Google is dumbing down Android, claiming that things such as SD cards are too complicated, and so they just rip it out.

This is what I like to refer to as the war on power users. I guess I shouldn't be surprised though, since it seems that any minority group in this world are the ones that get shit on and ignored.
