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.

Hopefully they'll think about CLIPBOARD management as well, since a lot of times, the reason why people switch back and forth between windows is to copy/paste multiple lines of text scattered throughout a document.

And in 2008, why does the Windows clipboard only store one kind of item at a time? Sure, there are 3rd party clipboard utils to solve this problem, but this should be built in, along with a Firefox-like multiple select option across ALL applications, and the ability to minimize windows to the system tray.
