Is the Scrollbar Going Away?

Mark Shuttleworth recently posted:
Our design roadmap calls for us to reduce the visibility of scrollbars,
and emphasise:

 - touch scrolling
 - scrollwheels

Most people don't scroll with the scrollbar any more. The use the
scrollbar to gauge "how much fo the document am I seeing".
Interesting view on the direction of Ubuntu.
