Re: Idea for the maximize, minimize and close icons

There's no application icon there, I think that this won't be good,
the icon gives a nice visual identifier for the application and helps
to relate the taskbar item and the window.
Perhaps the icon could be shown as part of the window title.

By the way, what do you think about the decoration being removed
completely when the window is maximized?.
What alternative place were you thinking about for moving the
functions provided by the window menu? (perhaps the buttons could be
put in the top panel? the breadcrumb idea proposed  that and I think
it would be neat)

> 1)The window will be minimized to the window taskbar(I think) and that's on the left on the screen

is the taskbar really going to be at the left side? I thought that the
left bar was optional.

I'm not sure what do you mean by "hotcorner", but I think it's harder
to reach for people who have grown accustomed to having the minimize
button at the right side, for other people I'm not sure if it's really
easier to reach. If the thing you want is to have big buttons then you
can do that with a custom theme.
