           Summary: Wish: Window management with "Fitt's Corners" by default
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: kubuntu-default-settings
        AssignedTo: debzilla at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: chris at deadhand.com

Current Kubuntu default allows to move a maximized window. But if you do this you will  
be moving a window that is to big for the screen except for the one position it is at  
the moment (beeing maximized), so normally you wouldn't want to move it.  
If this feature is disabled we gain a better one:  
Then there will be no window border on maximized windows and therefor the close button  
(top right), menu button (top left) and all of the window decoration (top center) will 
be right at the corner of the screen and a lot easier to hit with the mouse (part of 
"Fitt's Law"). Therefor you can quickly close a windows and just as quickly restore it 
to it's previous size (turn off maximize). 
I think this default should be changed accordingly: 
Settings -> Desktop -> Window Behavior -> Moving:  
"Allow moving and resizing of maximized windows": off
