Graphics, User Interfaces For as long as I can remember, I've been having issues with scrolling in Windows and its applications. When scrolling via dragging the scroll blob, it seemed as if Windows had the annoying habit of randomly resetting your scroll blob to its starting position, which irritated me to no end. It took me a while to figure out, but I finally know when this behaviour occurs - now I just need to know: why?!

Another scrolling "thing"

I'm a KDE user and a friend of mine who uses both Linux and Windows once told me about one curious thing that I had never noticed. In Windows (at least XP which is the last I've used) you can only use the scroll wheel in the active window. In KDE and I think that in Gnome too, you can scroll where you pointer is, independently of the focus of the window.
It's a completely different problem but I found it a curious behave.
