Apple Why does news like this always come right before I want to go to bed? Steve Jobs has just announced he is stepping down from the CEO position of Apple. He will be succeeded by Apple's chief operating officer, Tim Cook. Steve Jobs will remain at Apple as chairman of the board and director. This is... Strange.

Just my personal experience.
My job requires me to use multiple browsers and four windows open along side each other with a workflow that must be as efficient as possible. And files opening and closing constantly.
Right hand side minimize and restore down should be on the same side as your mouse hand (right handed). When it's not it means a mouse movement that instead of say 15cm no take 50cm of left to right swipe and back again.
It can go as high as 100cm when i work in a spreadsheet (on a left hand) monitor and browser on the other.
Sounds like nitpicking, but it really makes a difference if your me. It's a power user feature frankly.
Ubuntu and Mac OS can at least give you an option to change the location of that buttons.
Windows does this the sane way.

I'm going to resist the urge to pull out the ol' facepalm.jpg and give you the benefit of the doubt.

You're not suggesting which side your mouse is on (relative to your keyboard) determines which side of the screen your mouse cursor will be found on, are you? Please tell me that I'm misreading you.

Seriously 1 metre? A single flick of 1 or 2 cm and my pointer can be across my 4000 pixel wide desktop (dual display).

You must have understood me incorrectly i did not mean my hand shift 100cm, the cursor shift that 100cm. My mouse sensitivity is optimised. Increasing it to your level would make the work i do a bit to tricky.
Maybe i should get myself one of that gaming mouses with 1000000 DPI or something ;-)
