Windows Among the few things I'm proud of in my life, not having had contact with Windows when I first "met" a computer is somewhere around the top. Indeed, the first computer I used ran Unix, and I have been using Unices myself for some time.

Eehh..?

Unless you've done something really weird, the X will be in the top right corner in KDE and Gnome and with many different WM's. So it will also be in Windows. The problem is the small gap between the maximize/restore-button and the close-button. It should be twice as large (at the very least) and the distance should be customizable in order to handle large resolutions (1600*1200 on a 17"-monitor).

Unlike in Windows there's always a 1 pixel border. When there's no border you CAN'T miss it because you can't move the mouse too far.

Hmm... Is that with the Luna theme? Because with Classic there is a 2 pixel border on top and a 2 pixel border to the right of the close button. That is - if you have the taskbar in the bottom. Obviously I don't.

And with the right theme you don't have borders at all in Linux.
