Linux The Elementary OS team has released their latest offering, Luna, which has been in development for a while now. Based on Ubuntu, this Linux distribution aims to develop its own minimalist applications, but it goes beyond that - it has its own desktop environment, window manager, human interface guidelines, APIs, and more. There's an article on their blog detailing the road to Luna.

They've managed to build quite some hype, so let's see if it lives up to it. Does anyone here use it?

Try reading my post, I said they removed the minimize button not the actual ability to do it.

I have pointed out to them time and time again when a minimize button is truly useful, imagine uploading a file via an ftp program, you don't want to close it to stop the transfer but you also don't want it in the way - you minimize it. Just one of many examples, they ignore me everytime I bring that up.

Why don't you minimize the application by using the dock?

Try making a better point in your post. If all you want is a minimize button but you can still minimize applications using the dock, then what's the point of your cute little story about the FTP application?

It is the norm to use the minimize button, that is my point, they have removed that yet kept the function there because they claim close and minimize are too confusing for people.
