Comment 121 for bug 532633

The biggest issue with this left/right positioniong is consistency. Other applications have already be mentioned. But there is also Ubuntu Netbook Remix. When one maximizes a window, the close button is on the right hand side again. That's very confusing.

So, if the controls are to remain on the left, then the UNR titlebar in the panel has to be changed as well, to have its close button on the left side (and maybe the unmaximize and minimize buttons should be added, and the look should be adjusted to that of the theme).
