Window Managers "Linux has proven amazingly flexible: after nearly 10 years of use, I'm still impressed by how the Linux operating system does exactly what I want on any type of hardware. Desktop customization is no exception; from the ultra-modern KDE and GNOME window managers to with the likes of Fluxbox and AfterStep, there's a Linux desktop to suit everyone."

(Finder->applications. Why don't people complain about having to open a separate window in OSX?)


Because there are very few conversations about the deficiencies of the Mac OS X GUI, and those who don't like it have moved on to other OSs or DEs that do what they want.

I Mac OS does dearly needs an application launcher or an application menu, and no the dock doesn't count. I consider it a pretty quick launch bar and a mediocre task bar. I haven't lived with the 10.5 dock yet, so I can't say how the new features affect it.

Stacka can actually be a pretty decent application launcher. A little messy but cool nonetheless. Its no worse than the start menu, which isn't saying much. There is no dedicated icon but other than that stacks works pretty well in that respect. I wasn't actually complaining about having to open a new window to find apps. I happen to like it. It keeps things clean for the most part, I was just wondering why the double-standards.
