New Habits

How quickly we adapt to changes and adopt new habits...

Yes, I'm talking about the button saga. Window control buttons on the left on all the machines (Gnome and LXDE) for less than a week and only once yesterday did I head to the top-right corner of the screen. I've mixed up minimize/maximize controls twice in three days. Nobody died. I lost no data.

Speaking as a creature of habit, I think this says that when we have to, we adapt. If you change platforms and move around machines and operating systems, you can't afford to go to sleep and work your tech on auto-pilot.

Window controls: left or right, stay awake. Get over it. RC
