Gnome I have to admit I've been struggling with this one for a while, most importantly because I haven't used GNOME 3 yet; I'm setting up my own little company right now, so time's a little short. As such, all I can do here is cover the arguments given - which, in my book, have both their strong as well as their weak points. Yes, GNOME 3 will not have buttons for minimising or maximising windows.

It is unique to Windows 7 ... believe it or not Microsoft actually come up with their own ideas.

KDe4 has it. If it is copied from Windows 7 or existed prior to it I don't know.

The first time I used Win7 RC, I went to snap the windows to fill half of the monitor because I had already done so in KDE4.

I am fairly certain it was in KDE first, and I do miss being able to maximise vertically and horizontally as well as to take the full screen.

I can not remember which WM had it, but there was something that had a "fill empty space" option for windows, which maximised them up to the borders of neighbouring windows like a TWM.
