Rayo is a swing look and feel for Eclipse Scout. It is designed to look and feel "different" than those boring grey windows from the 90s.
Window controls are rearranged or omitted intentionally to give the user a more clean and simple user interface. While the marketing departments likes this very much ("So simple, everyone can use it without teaching, you can't do anything wrong - and it's blue!"), it certainly limits the possibilites to the programmer. First, you usually do not programm any GUI code, but only "client model code" that is then mapped to the GUI automatically. This limits you to the possibilities the model offers. Second, not all of those model objects are supported by the Rayo LAF, because they would not fit in.
