I never noticed that in OSX. I thought it had static scrollbars. I could be wrong though as I rarely use it. Regardless, it's a neat idea. So If it was first in Apple's OS, kudos.

meh, havn't used scrollbars much since mice have scrollwheels. And now that almost all trackpads are multitouch I see even less use for them

Mac OS X Lion Feature. Scrollbars just disappear when not using them. Scroll Around documents with multitouch, not clicking a down button.

Regardless of where the idea came from, it's a neat idea. Unity may not be so bad after all.

Always funny to see when a random Linux distro copies stuff from Apple they just don't get it done quite right.

After playing with Unity for a few days I found it utterly terrible.

Not officially released yet (it might not even exist in the final), so Linux guys will be the first, sorry. :whistle:

I have to use scrollbars... I got a trackball mouse. I do have the YaSS extension for FF and I love how it makes my arrow keys have a nice smooth scroll. love the bouncy effect at the end of the page. I highly recommend this addon!

What about it? You just go to Control Center and select another theme, it's easy.

Cool feature all in all.

Another actually useful feature made it in today: sound menu has a microphone slider when using Skype for instance.

Btw I say we keep this thread as a general Unity discussion place and to keep progress, I'll speak for myself when I say Unity is looking way more interesting in light of recent Gnome 3 changes.

Not to get too off topic, but what changes might that be?

Except that they debuted in the iPhone in 2007. So at best they can claim to be the first to implement iPhone-style scroll bars on a desktop OS, not exactly original still :p

Why it should be? Originality just for the sake of it is almost never a good idea, in fact it's quite idiotic.

Look at Apple, they dont invent anything, but they take an already existing concept and refine it to new levels.

The timing just seems interesting. They've been known to be in OS 10.7 since last fall, and then Ubuntu suddenly decides that they're a great addition to their OS :D

Not that they shouldn't have them, but having them isn't really a big deal.

Aww, Ubuntu is growing up. It's gone from being lots of ugly stuff to a consistently ugly interface. I guess that's progress by some definition.
