Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Common sense has prevailed (see bold text)! "The final decision on window controls for 10.04 LTS is as follows: the window controls will remain on the left, however the order will change to be (from left) close, minimize, maximise. The decision is based on the view that putting the close button in the corner will be most familiar to many users, even if the particular choice of corner is not."

No. It could make Ubuntu a little less user unfriendly, and Sheldon Cooper might not like that...

Linux must be difficult/not so easy to use to keep it's user base. If non-geek people can use the system, then geeks will not want to use it. I know wouldn't...=)

Yes, makes me think about switching to something more obscure...
Eventually I hope we will all switch to Haiku.
