Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Mark Shuttleworth: "I simply have zero interest in the crowd who wants to be different. Leet. 'Linux is supposed to be hard so it's exclusive' is just the dumbest thing that a smart person could say." He's right. Lots of interesting insights in this blog post - I may not agree with everything Ubuntu does, but at least it's doing something.

- Client-side window decorations. Window management is a compositor's job.


Could go either way. On the one hand, they were pushing for them but, on the other hand, they did move away from that kind of design with appindicators.

(Though I always switch back to the traditional tray icon or find a new application when faced with appindicators because I insist on left-click being "hide/show main window" and right-click being "show context menu". Last I checked, the libappindicator API simply does not support letting an application register a handler beyond "show context menu".)
