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.

Hi,

The multiplication of tabs in various apps (web browser, file browser, IM, terminals, text editors, etc.) is quite redudante. That's in fact a limitation of windows managers. Google Chrome even merge title bar and tab bar.

When will windows manager provide tabbed windows as mainstream ? This will save codes and screen space. I'm waiting for tabbed Gimp image, tabbed document, tabbed spreadsheets, etc. All the same way.
