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.

An alternative approach which I'd like to see is tiling in most cases, but with an easy way to resize/move windows for those who can't get around their overlapping needs.
