I personaly hate the wasted space of the title and the icons.Minimize, 
maximize and close can be done as fast if not faster with keys. And I 
oftem minimize or maximize only horizontal or vertical. And I do not 
look at the title at any time. I see what the program is. I see more 
details in the tabs if they exist. If not, I still see what it is.

So a great option could be the ability to turn off title bars on a 
window or program level. e.g. how Windowmaker does it. Right click and 
all the options can be changed on different levels. RTo me that 
flexability is thinking of the user.

Fort now I use the "Border-only" theme that puts a 1 pixel border around 
the window and removes the window title bar. The theme can be found here 

To further comment on this issue. I am a user. I do not completely 
comprehend the situation to bne honest. I just want things to work and 
look as I like it. If I don't, I go to something else.  Probably back to 
Windowmaker due to change the windows settings per window as well as 
much easier by just right clicking and going into the menu.
