Graphics, User Interfaces Back in the 80s, a GUI paradigm called WIMP (Windows, Icons, Mouse, Pointer) began to establish itself as the new way in which most people interacted with a computer. When it comes to one of the most significant elements of that system, overlapping windows, I'm beginning to wonder, has it had its day?

I thought about trying to explain why I disagree with your oppinion on tiling window managers and your use of the word inconvenient but I have reached a point in my life where I dont really care to explain my viewpoint anymore. People I explain stuff to mostly come to the same conclusion anyway given enough time.

Agreed.

You need an iPad not a computer if you don't need overlapping windows.
