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?!

2. Stop squandering your precious vertical real estate with toolbars, giant win7 taskbars, and other UI frills.


Or if you must have a giant taskbar, move it to the left (or right) of your monitor. I've been using this configuration since Windows 98 - it's the only sensible layout for working on a widescreen monitor. It also allows for much more applications in the taskbar without all that silly grouping (pre-Windows 7 anyway).

Unfortunately, I've yet to find a Linux desktop environment that supports it without making a mess of the layout. KDE4 almost manages it but still looks ugly. It's been completely broken in GNOME since time immemorial. XFCE nearly got it in 4.0, but broke it terribly in later versions with no sign of it ever being fixed.
