"Yes ladies and gentlemen, it's official... Ubuntu 9.04 has a whole new notification system, almost the same as the one in the Macintosh operating system. The new notification framework was named "Notify-OSD" and it can handle both keyboard actions such as volume and brightness, and application notifications. What does this mean? Well... for example, when a buddy goes offline or online, when you receive a chat/IRC message, when a torrent is finished, when you change the volume or the brightness of your monitor, when new software updates are available, when a network connection has been established... a very nice and stylish (black, at the moment) notification will be displayed for a few seconds in the top right corner of the screen."
