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.

Accidental clicks...

I have another reason to HATE this idea.... Sometimes I overshoot the "File" menu and click the window menu instead. The last thing I want to accidentally click is the window buttons. Having them on the right makes sense because the only reason I am in that corner is to manipulate the window. Why would anyone want those controls just pixels away from the commonly used menus of the application.
