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?

I have found AwesomeWM (window manager) + bash terminal (as file manager) to be the Holy Grail for my desktop systems. I'll never ever go back to overlapping windows, thats for sure ;)
