Graphics, User Interfaces For as long as I can remember, I've been having issues with scrolling in Windows and its applications. When scrolling via dragging the scroll blob, it seemed as if Windows had the annoying habit of randomly resetting your scroll blob to its starting position, which irritated me to no end. It took me a while to figure out, but I finally know when this behaviour occurs - now I just need to know: why?!

While I agree with Thom, he did completely miss the more annoying aspect of Windows scrolling: the active window receives all scroll wheel events.

I hate this. I love being able to just put my mouse over a window and scroll. Helpful when you need to read from one window, and write into another.

"Focus follows mouse" and "focus does not imply foreground" - two concepts I'm ejoying for many years happily. :-)
