It seems that the Ubuntu community has found out that their opinion does not count as much as they thought and that Ubuntu “is not a democracy“. So the
purple, I mean aubergine, theme is here to stay and the window control button placement will be on the top left (and in the opposite order from OSX for the moment). I guess this is a really big issue because you can not change themes or configuration files in Ubuntu… wait… you can? Oh well then, move along, nothing to see here. I can almost guarantee that there will be a script released that changes the window control placement to the right side, just as many scripts are available to install all the “restricted” multimedia codecs that are not installed by default.
We all have known for a long time that Arch is not a democracy. So Ubuntu users set to move to a new distro where they can contribute nothing but still have their opinion count should not look towards Arch.
