This has resulted in my fake version of Ubuntu feeling more solid than the real thing in a way that I haven't put my finger on it until just now.
I just added the grabby-hand drag cursor when an icon is being dragged and it feels awful. I thought it might convey useful information but it just makes things feel cheap.
|No thanks!||Yes please.|
It's the same thing when dragging windows. I don't like it!
It's great to have the cursor show that a copy-action will be performed, or something will be deleted - there is a lot of scope for showing useful information in the mouse cursor. But we need to tone down the noise or it will drown.
So let's just have a normal pointer during drag operations. Can we, can we please?
