Windows There is one thing that really pushes my buttons, one thing that is sure to send me off on a rant on life, the universe, and everything. I have a 21" widescreen 1680x1050 display - which might not be large to some of the real geeks in here, but to me, it's pretty huge. With so much screen real estate, why oh why do my friends all still insist on maximising every window they come across when they sit down behind my computer? This - and more - is the subject of the latest post on Microsoft's Engineering 7 weblog.

Giving these people a brain was a waste, a Spine would have sufficed ;)

Microsoft could just take a leaf out of their own research book and reduce vista's resource usage by just installing ratpoison. For 98% of windows users this also would suffice :~)

Not that there's anything wrong with ratpoison mind you!
