Paste Protection in elementary OS

This is just one of many the little things in elementary OS that make it such a great distro. It is a very cool touch that exemplifies how their development team puts the user experience and protection of the end-user first. I like this dialog box, not only for the obvious function that it provides, but for the user experience elements. First, notice that there is a checkbox that allows the user to continue to receive paste protection warnings. For those who don't want to be bothered with this, they can simply uncheck the box. Second, notice that the “Paste Anyway” button is red. This is a nice little touch that further illustrates the potential danger of this particular action.

Such a great team, and such a great distro to get involved with.
