Companies such as Apple and Facebook can somewhat get away with being trendsetters and dictating behaviour to their users.

It was wise to group all of the standard OS GUI window resize buttons, although the Miniplayer button in iTunes is still on the right-hand side, but neither the traffic light color scheme (which was kept from previous versions) nor the complete replacement seem very intuitive.
