If you are actually considering touch scrolling, than you should also consider that touch screens are much less precise than mouse pointers: the mouse contact area is exactly 1 pixel, while fingerprints spread across a significant area. That is a good reason to keep the close button out of the way.

I really love Ubuntu, and want it to succeed.
