Re: design, give a suitable direction forward


Talking about Fitt's law, in the design expanding the Launcher in the whole
height the BFB would take the corner spot away from window controls, thats
right. This could be a problem because window controls are hidden by
default, but being in the corner makes them more easily discoverable by

One fix in my opinion could be making the* window controls always
visible*when a window is in maximized mode. That way only the global
menu and the
window title would fade to each other. The unmaximized behavior could
remain unchanged. Expanding the Launcher or implementing the
sliding-desktop behavior would be almost identical in this case.
