Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Remember how Mark Shuttleworth justified moving the window titlebar widgets to the left by claiming the space freed up on the right side could now be used for something else? On his blog, Shuttleworth unveiled what, exactly, Ubuntu's plans are: window indicators, or 'windicators'. In a nutshell, it comes down to having a tray area in every window.

How about waiting for the implementation before passing judgment?

The only thing knee-jerk reactions do is give you bad knees.

Because it's damn near impossible to kill an API once it gets implemented.

If something's going to suck the time to kill it is before it hits the wild.

Because the last few releases have been so chock-full of improvements that show the merits of Shuttleworth's implementations and designs?

Ubuntu's nonstandard way of doing things has helped so much more than it has needlessly broken things that somehow other distros don't have any issues with, including those based on Debian and Ubuntu itself?

Because Canonical can't seem to stop "fixing" things that aren't broke?

I don't know, man...I can't think of a single reason why reactions have been so unfavorable...

Here's a clue: It's not a knee-jerk reaction when your reaction is based on past performance.

Hint: The past performance--it's not good.
