Comment 177 for bug 532633

Dear Mr. Shuttleworth & Ubuntu design team:

Now that you've reminded us, the end users, of our proper place in the pecking order, I would respectfully request that you consider adding an easy way of changing the min/max/close buttons from the left back to the right. Perhaps by providing a simple radio button choice in the Appearance Preferences.

It may seem silly to argue this much over where those buttons are, but, I must say I've been dinking with computers for over 20 years, and have been pushing my mouse up to the right-hand corner of application windows to get to the min/max/close buttons for approximately the same amount of time. The cliche "I know it like the back of my hand" applies here. I'm simply not going to spend time adapting to a new way of doing things just because the design team of one "flavor" of one Linux distro thinks it looks good.

Nor do I want to futz around with gconf-editor or add a repository every time I install Ubuntu, just to get those buttons back to where I'm accustomed.

Why should you care? Only because I doubt I'm the only one who feels this way.
