Mark wake up!

Don't forget Ubuntu's philosophy about being open and community-based.
It's fair that you want a standard Ubuntu-look, but you need to listen to the community.
If the users want to move the launcher why just let them? Why don't you you bind the Ubuntu-logo to the top panel?
Even in the often criticized Mac OS X it's possible to decide if the dock should be either at the bottom or at the right or left side of the screen.

Anyway, I guess that Unity is going to be open source, so people either can make a hack or a fork that supports movement of the launcher.

Is this a bad sign that tells that Ubuntu is going to be a locked-in OS that only supports the kind of customization that it's company allows?
