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.

Multiple desktops (my standard is 4) becomes very handy to the point that not having them on Windows drives me a little crazy. My first config change is to set my key command to switch desktops. After that, it's internet stuff on one, admin shells on another.. no single desktop with several layers of unrelated programs displayed.

(edit): I'm noticing more mouse drivers coming with a sticky scroll. I hit the middle mouse button and a white circle with up and down arrows appears. The scrollable window under it moves up and down based on how far away from middle my mouse is. You may be able to get the middle button scrolling through the mouse driver rather than a touchscreen or OS function.
