Bug Description

Why does the logout/shutdown/reboot indicator have to occupy the top right corner? (could be because of the memory leaks ofcourse https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/unity/+bug/720446) How about a window list indicator up there? In fact every other indicator (sound, messaging?) I use more often, just how often do you have to reboot?

Added needs-design as this would need some feedback from the Ayatana design team to be considered.

Thank you for your bug report, I'm marking the unity part as wontfix, the menu itself is being refined over cycles but there are no plan to put something else in the corner, you can read the plans for next cycle on:
