Windows So, a rudimentary jailbreak for Windows RT made its way onto the web these past few days. Open source applications were ported right away, and it was confirmed that Windows RT is the full Windows - it's exactly the same as regular Windows, except that it runs on ARM. Microsoft responded to the jailbreak as well.

In fact, its rather curious that you didn't go straight for Alt+Tab, since its how you would do it using Windows 7.


Not at all. In Windows 7 or in any other popular operating system or window manager (ratpoison doesn't count) I would just click the little "X" button on the corner of the Window. It's something highly visible and useful. Or I could just click on the Window that I was before because I could see it. There's nothing wrong with this old-fashined (sarcasm) approach.

But there is this modern idea that WIMP is dead, the mouse is dead, discoverabiliity is dead, etc.. Whatever.
