Linux A complaint you hear quite often is that the Linux desktop environments, which mostly refers to KDE and GNOME, are trying too hard to be like Windows and Mac OS X. Now, even James Bottomley, Distinguished Engineer at Novell, Director of the Linux Foundation, and Chair of its Technical Advisory Board (put that on your business card) states in an interview that he believes the Linux desktop is too much like Windows and Mac.

And lets me get "window-list" and "application" menus by right- or left-clicking in the background.
Every WM I've used, all the way back to OLWM on Sparc2 back in the early Nineties did that.

Except KDED 4.x. (Ironically, KDE3.x has the easiest/best customization I know of that way.)

And when I've tried to go through the appropriate channels on that one, I've been shot down.
Or told I should have made it a feature request right off the bat.

Should I also have made "support for 3-button mice" a feature request? You should be able to take some things for granted.
