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.

Can someone explain this to me?

No. If you dont understand why brand identity is important (even if your product is free) there's nothing we can do for you.

Well, i guess if you think a color scheme makes Ubuntu stand out with its "brand identity" then that makes you a marketing genius.

Also, seeing your blog, you're apparently a poster-child for freetardia. So, I guess "brand identity" for FOSS makes sense in your warped world.

Thanks for your valuable and unique contribution to the discussion. It's not every day you see such biting wit as "freetardia".
