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.

Yes, window management is one of the reasons I stay with MorphOS.
On MorphOS active windows can stay in the backgrund, you can specify each application how the window should be opened by default. You can open as many screens as your memory allows, you can specify on which screen (and which resolution) an app should open, you can pass easily one app from one screen to another.
You can configure the window mangement very much: simple click brings window to front or double click brings window to front, double click on title bar full screens a window (maximize does not necessarily be full screen) and so on and on; the list is really long.
Plus, all window management gadgets are on the top right of an window except the close - and only the close - gadget, which is on the top left.

Really, MorphOS may be lacking a lot (apps and some other (important) stuff), but window managment is best - at least to my taste and knowledge (that, apart from MorphOS, includes Windows, OS X, QNX and Linux).

Note: On AmigaOS and AROS it is virtually the same.
