Please stop the I know it all, I have so much experience, please don't make me explain anything, just do what I say attitude. Either what you propose makes sense or it doesn't. I can and will judge for myself and so can everybody else on this list. For it to be any different, I wrote a whole speech on *** on this but I guess this guy is not worth it. a classic lazy programmer who prefers to stick with an outdated thing for years. ...

Ok think we all agree that this should be implemented right?

As you said, this idea to hide the scrollbar seems to come from touch-devices, or at least became popular with those. No I didn't say that, I said that you don't need to click a scroll bar nobody clicks a scroll bar for scrolling(right? well my granny maybe does but she's not the case. ) and since u don't need to click it it's hidden by default to let you save some free screen space and increase readability and then I said that's why they don't have those on mobile. ...

It makes complete sense once the scroll bars are hidden by default: You are now primarily scrolling the window contents, not moving the indicator on the scroll bar. Personally, it made immediate sense to me and just took a couple of weeks for the scrollbar-moving direction of scroll wheels to feel very weird and unintuitive on other OS’s. Luckily, there are (usually non-standard) tweaks for most OS’s to adjust the HID device scroll behaviour to be inverted and it would be great on Haiku as well. ...

I do have mixed feelings about so called natural or reversed scrolling. It makes complete sense once the scroll bars are hidden by default: You are now primarily scrolling the window contents, not moving the indicator on the scroll bar.

[As a personal opinion, I'm not too impressed with a lot of the trendy UI stuff. Ubuntu has a lot of the fades, and so on, and is often frustratingly unusable. In particular the scrollbars are abysmal!] Do you have the same problems with OSX's UI? If yes please explain why. P.S. again u can enable the standard scrollbars in Ubuntu. ...
