Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Canonical has unveiled a complete branding overhaul, redesigning everything from the Ubuntu website to its logos and marketing material. However, what interests me more are the new Gtk+ themes, and even then, I'm not interested in the colour choices and the like. No - what stood out to me right away was not the theme itself - but the placement of the titlebar widgets.

There is a gui for it. It's just primitive. You have to enter text and/or numbers instead of moving sliders or clicking check boxes. No different than choosing custom colors in windows (which requires entering numbers)

Numbers? The settings require words, not numbers. They're strings.

The string is alphanumeric. But yes. This particular setting is letters only (and some special characters). However, the Gnome "registry" also have settings which requires entering numbers. I should have made it clearer that I was speaking of a generic Gnome "registry"-setting in my second post. But all strings are alphanumeric anyway.

But still easy to change the layout anyway. Textual input does not equal "being hard".

You are kidding, right?
KDE has this ( http://docs.kde.org/stable/en/kdebase-workspace/kcontrol/kwindecora... ) for ages... and then people say KDE SC is too complicated....

Unfortunately I'm not kidding. I'm sure one can blame it on the Gnome HIG.
