Windows There is one thing that really pushes my buttons, one thing that is sure to send me off on a rant on life, the universe, and everything. I have a 21" widescreen 1680x1050 display - which might not be large to some of the real geeks in here, but to me, it's pretty huge. With so much screen real estate, why oh why do my friends all still insist on maximising every window they come across when they sit down behind my computer? This - and more - is the subject of the latest post on Microsoft's Engineering 7 weblog.

Reading all the comments about stealing features from Linux/Compiz (snap to borders, virtual desktops, always on top etc.) is nice.

Lol. Virtual desktops date back to the early eighties at least, they have nothing to do with Linux. "Always on top" has been a window property on Windows for many, many years, so I'm pretty sure it wasn't invented by the "Linux/Compiz community" either. Heck, nothing you wrote made any sense at all - you probably referred to the "X community", but even then that's really innacurate...
