OSNews, Generic OSes Taking a break from reporting on the latest netbook or phone rumours, Engadget posted an article yesterday about several elements in desktop operating systems writer Paul Miller finds outdated. While there's some interesting stuff in there, there's also a lot to discuss.

but want to remove a window from your current view, with out closing it


Just switch to another window, that neatly gets the window out of your way. Or maybe there could just be a feature like "Send to back" that sends the window to the back of the window stack.
I dunno, maybe it's just me but it's been years since I found minimize to be actually useful. In fact, I find it annoying and it's one of the first things I try to disable.
