Graphics, User Interfaces Back in the 80s, a GUI paradigm called WIMP (Windows, Icons, Mouse, Pointer) began to establish itself as the new way in which most people interacted with a computer. When it comes to one of the most significant elements of that system, overlapping windows, I'm beginning to wonder, has it had its day?

Split windows within Dolphin don't really account for more than a minor fraction of my drag & drop activities. I drag file names from Dolphin to the command line (very practical), and I drag files from Akregator to Dolphin or to the desktop (I'm sure there are better ways to get podcasts, but I don't really want to bother with more than one RSS reader). It's not even about "switching tasks"; one task takes several applications.
