Graphics, User Interfaces For as long as I can remember, I've been having issues with scrolling in Windows and its applications. When scrolling via dragging the scroll blob, it seemed as if Windows had the annoying habit of randomly resetting your scroll blob to its starting position, which irritated me to no end. It took me a while to figure out, but I finally know when this behaviour occurs - now I just need to know: why?!

Fitt's law

What annoys me to no end is that on Ubuntu (probably everything with GNOME), Fitt's law isn't applied to the scroll bar. When i maximise a window, my mouse cursor has to be ONE PIXEL from the side of the screen to scroll! Please, please remove that pixel of window border, or make the scrollbar 1 pixel wider.

My Kubuntu KDE4.3 has no stupid one pixel border.

About Thoms Windows nitpicks:

- no hotspot CHECK
- middle mouse button will just to where you want to go CHECK
- grouped scroll buttons CHECK

Honestly Thom, a picky geek like you that wants to have things work exactly the way he likes it is KDE target audience. Always has been. And you can even influence the direction they are going a lot more than with Windows (MS will never change these things, people exspect this broken behaviour from Windows and MS is all about backwards younameit)
