Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris As revealed yesterday, Mandriva today released a special version of its Mandriva One 2007 distribution, using the 'Metisse' 3D environment (which is actually not a 3D environment). "Metisse is a window manager developed by the In Situ project. Available under the General Public Licence exclusively for Linux, Metisse differs from a classic 3D desktop ('the cube') in the way that it offers innovative windows interactions, thus enforcing work efficiency."

It seems somewhat related to the "Focus follows mouse" principle, at least the focused window shall not be toplevel.
This is a peculiarity of X windows ( I remember I first saw it more than 10 years ago on OpenLook Sun Sparc workstations...), I miss it daily at work with Windows.

Is there any poll on the ratio of users of "focus follows mouse" versus "click to focus" on Linux ?
