Comment 98 for bug 532633

@michael, During karmic release cycle I installed karmic beta on my friends
laptop, he was inspired by ubuntu that its free, how the company afford
something like an OS without getting any money from the user. When I ran the
live session he did not notice but when the installation completed and I
gave him the laptop and asked him to try it for a few minutes without asking
anything from me. after he tested he said. "Yaar ismain change kia hai?"
translated "whats different in it" I looked at him with straight eyes ( now
he uses windoze). In my believe we should (ubuntu) look and feel different
from our biggest enemy. This change makes the feel of the OS cooler IMHO.
For usability point of view, think that every application is using things on
the left sides == browser tabs, buttons in every app start from left, menu
buttons like file,edit start from left so why go to the right hand side for
window operations?
