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.

System tray recently went through transition from client rendering and XEmbed to host rendering - client just provides icons and menu descriptions using dbus to the host (plasma in case of KDE). Why Shuttleworth wants to go in opposite direction with window decorations? His 'windicators' could be done with server-side decorations and some EHWM additions.
