Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Canonical has announced the availability of the first Ubuntu 10.04 beta release. The new version of Ubuntu, codenamed Lucid Lynx, is scheduled to arrive in April. It will be a long-term support release, which means that updates will be available for three years on the desktop and five years on servers. Although the Ubuntu developers have largely focused on boosting stability for this release, they have also added a number of noteworthy new features and applications. One of the most visible changes is the introduction of a new theme - a change that is part of a broader rebranding initiative that aims to update Ubuntu's visual identity." It might just be me, but I find the new theme ghastly. Compare this to this (my desktop). Oh, and Metacity - I can has anti-aliasing?

*sigh*. Still with that obtuse Firefox and help icon with bad spacing stuck at the top there.

The more it changes, the more it doesn't.

That spacing has never bothered me.

I don't think the placement and size of those icons is a huge deal; that sounds a lot like nit-picking. Equally, they're completely configurable; you could make them whatever you want, and position them wherever. It's really not much of an issue.

Unfortunately, you can't change the button order without breaking the theme, as they are pixmaps.

But yeah, it's not a big deal. It's just well hidden in gconf-editor.

For those interested to get back the previous layout:
$ gconf-editor

Key: /apps/metacity/general/button_layout
Value: menu:minimize,maximize,close
