Comment 103 for bug 532633

It's taken two years and 116 comments here (https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/metacity/+bug/160311) to make absolutely no progress whatsoever. I doubt we'll be seeing this LTS with buttons on the right. Maybe the next LTS.

General "usability" in Ubuntu is pretty low and I think it's down to a complete lack of usability studies. If they /are/ performed, they're being done so privately and the results are remaining private. Until we can see the results of such a study, all we have is one person's opinions against another. And it sounds a lot like Mark's made up his mind on this one - given his comments and participation in this thread and the suspicious timing of this change (on the day of the UI freeze).
