I think any discussion could be good when based on respect and trying to 
focus on objective technical topics.

Of course anyone have its own oppinion, but I think in this case we can 
talk about if CSD have a real technical advantage in order to achieve a 
consistent desktop environment experience.

As I said before, I think CSD brings inconsistency (cause the reasons I 
told before). But maybe my knowledge is not as good to understand all 
the CSD benefits and I can change my mind if anyone could explain them 
to me.

In short. I think this thread could be a constructive one. ;)

I still using gtk3-nocsd patch on my Debian. But it does not works with 
all apps and although it is a good solution, it is not perfect in terms 
of consistency (apps with two header bars don't look like very well ).

IMHO CSD was introduced to bring an specific user experience to Gnome 
Users (Elementary uses CSD too), but they suppose all the users only 
will use their applications and they suppose they could bring us all the 
applications we need. This actually still don't happen until now... and 
surely never will happen. So I think it is not a good idea.
