    Personally, I suggest all people that ask me, to use XFCE, until LXDE is finished. Myself am using Lubuntu with LXDE.
    Links & proof or youre just a troll. Judging from post count and your name, im guessing troll until proven otherwise.

    I use KDE personally but I've tried Gnome-Shell before and I have to agree with Schmidtbag. Unity is OS X with the Dock shifted over to the left side. Gnome-Shell on the other hand is something else entirely and my experiences playing around with Windows 8 lead me to believe that both Metro and Gnome-Shell are pulling off of the same design school/document that seems to be embracing the idea of simplicity through obfuscation (EULAs being a perfect example of this. EULAs are way too complicated to read without a lawyer on hand to advise you so people are just going to click next therefore it's "simpler"). But you'll note the Windows 8 and Gnome-Shell operate in pretty much the same fashion even if they're rather different in their implementation. Which points to them operating off the same idea rather than Microsoft copying off of Gnome.

    That and with KDE even if they changed the defaults, you can easily reconfigure window decorations positioning. I use KDE and I don't even have a maximize button, minimize is on the extreme left, close is on the extreme right. Toggle maximized is just double click title.

    If you look at my profile, I have a link to my website.

    Regarding KDE 4.10, google "kde 4.10", and then select the video category in the results. :-)

    If that is actually true, it's still not a problem. Click, click, and it's gone, back to the way you want it.

    You could always put the buttons where you want them in KDE, if you didn't like the default.

    I tried the rc of 4.10 the latest week. The default is exactly as before. You can move the buttons and menu as you like, but the default is not changed.

    Nothing in either the article or the video points to any change in the defaults. The positions of the buttons is user configurable as is the position of the menubar. The defauls have not changed and it shouldn't be that hard to understand.
