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.

I am not talking about the button placement, but the title placement. For example in the first screenshot that would be 'ubuntu - File Browser'. I think it's better centered both usability-wise and because it look's better (mainly because there's a lot of clutter in the left side).

But what interests me is that previous versions had the title centered, so these guys made a conscious decision to move the title.
