BeOS & Derivatives Two news items about alternative operating system news in a row? What is this, Christmas? In any case, the Haiku project, the darling of OSNews (hey it's okay now), has released its second alpha release. This new stable development release contains some serious improvements over the first alpha.

You can slide the tab on the window press shift or control don't remember which also you can drag windows by thier borders...


Another thing Alt+click is an X11 feature... not Linux since you get it on solaris and bsd too I think anyway

Yes, I know that. But I think this ability is close to useless at the moment, the benefits don't overcome the drawbacks.
What I would like it the ability to create *real* tabbed, grouped windows. Something like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCL_6YNgc8w (around 2:20). This, imo, would make more sense than current tabbing features.

You're right. When I said linux, I implicitly meant the kernel + whole library&app set you get in the average distro. Forgive me for that.

The features you are looking for have been under development for some time by a group at the University of Auckland:

It has generated lots of interest and discussions. Try searching for "Stack and Tile" on google and/or in the Haiku mailing lists. Sooner or later this will be part of Haiku, but stabilizing the code and merging it into trunk is a lot of work.
