How ridiculous is that, moving the close button from the absolute edge of the window, further into the middle, to prevent people accidentaly clicking the thing! What's the one usability feature of MS windows which users actually use? the ability to sling the mouse pointer into the upper right hand corner of a maximised window to close it quickly. Most of ideas outlined in that screenshot are extremely backward, especially the idea that users should not be able to move windows past the screen borders, everyone knows that being able to fit the important parts of 2 windows of fairly sizable proportions onto the screen at the same time can be very useful. it's a nice idea to try and shake up GUI design, but this is nearly as twisted as some of Microsoft's ideas.
