    Oh the gray lines and the change on these search-box-bar (was not withe in 3.4.x) make it looks clean. Also now you see that you can grap the window at this point to (which is fun, because you haven’t to point with the mouse so correctly and its like throw the window around (Fitts’s law works ;))

    And there is no Bluetooth icon anymore (in archlinux with 3.4 so see also an Bluetooth icon if you haven’t Bluetooth) <- is this a change which comes with 3.5.6 or is this because you haven't installed a special Bluetooth package?

      Wow, you are quite observant. Yeap I missed bluetooth package. BT is still there, Sorry!

    “Ubuntu forked it” yadayada.

    If you don’t know much just don’t say anything okay?

    • alex285

      They didn’t it? I cannot find Gnome-Control-Center upstream in Canonical, plus there is that link that Canonical says about forking it. Did they change their mind?

      • Roland Taylor

        All I’m saying is, you don’t know if Ubuntu users will never see it. Ubuntu “forked” it so they could more easily maintain patches, but as of this point we don’t know if they will still take upstream changes or not (or much else yet for that matter).

        I’m just trying to remind you that just because you have a bias doesn’t mean you should make statements like that, because quite honestly we don’t know that.

          “Ubuntu users may never see it as Canonical decided to fork it, possibly by a name like Ubuntu Control Center, but I don’t really know much about it.”

          I said “may”, that means they might yes, they might no. Then I post the link that says about forking and the change of the name. And finally i said I don’t know whats happening next. But forking is fact.
