A recent article on Slashdot.org brought to light an internal batting raging on about changes to the button layout on one of the Ubuntu skins.  I found this really interesting because in reading the comments, you really get a sense of the arguments for and against changing a given feature in an overall design.  

The comments on the Ubuntu UX feature are here:

The Slashdot article is here:

While we don't all have to make OS UX considerations, some of these passionate arguments will probably sound familiar and may prove instructional when we have to go to war for our own designs.
