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.

Shuttleworth's sweetest dreams...

... are starting to become my nightmare. First that move of titlebar buttons from right to left (yes, I did swap them after install). And now this? Windincators?

I am not sure this is good or bad, I am still watching over this hot debate... If this is to fork more resource in my system, it will certainly suck, big time...

However I fear that I may have to switch to some other distro, like Fedora, when 10.10 arrives. This is a delicate step Canonical is taking, and could very well screw up Ubuntu's worthy mass of followers.

I have that "This is not a democracy" thing still choking my throat.

Wait... someone said in the past that this whole Canonical thing would turn out into pure nighmare one day.
