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.

This exactly why I think that the close button should be in a separate corner from the min/max buttons. I have occasionally hit the wrong button. It's frustrating. There is probably some usability study that says I'm in some microculture of wrong-button-hitters. At least move the close button away from the other two. Even a little bit would really help the accidental close window problem.

True. There's a reason the classic Mac OS and Windows 3.1 had the close button on the left and the min/max buttons on the right.
