Some people say that Unity is touch friendly and I even saw a video of an Ubuntu developer showing it off on a Dell touch screen.

It looks touch friendly and all but the window buttons still look too tiny to be touch friendly. There could be a gesture or something to close the windows easily, but not everyone will know about them and will aim at the little buttons.

Gestures will be the easiest method for closing windows in touch environment. There have been several ideas discussing how to improve the window button in a touch environment, however no firm decisions have been made. Ideas range from making the buttons grow bigger on tap (so you have a bigger hit area) to having just plain ol huge buttons.

Thank's for the answer. I was Thinking about the "tab to make buttons larger" idea. It makes perfect sense to me. – user2960 Dec 14 '10 at 5:37
