window buttons (max,min,close) illogical/counterintuitive/mac like

Asked by amimou on 2010-03-22

It is really strange and intriguing. why change the position of those buttons. people are used to what it is today and it's not like the change brings solutions to a problem. there is no problem. the change of the position is the problem.
an other weird thing, if ubuntu wants to attracts windows users (which is above 80% of the users) it's not by making such a bad change that they will be attracted. The mac users are mac users, they do not want anything else.
it's been more than 3 years that I am using Ubuntu and very satisfied with it. donated regularly to keep the ubuntu going. I hope this project listens to people and do not forget it's essence. human.

if changes are to be brought for the betterment then let it be with applications and OS for low resources requirement and much stable than providing the buttons change from right to left as it is creating confusion and initially i was thinking there is some bug that is why buttons have moved to LHS. And if they are moving then it should be for all the applications....like firefox, /namoroka and other applications also..... In the end what is achieved is nothing.
