RE[3]: CDE?

Yes the "Iconify Windows" concept is the one you either love or hate. You don't have to use CDE to see it. Just start up X-Org with default TWM and there you have it - the iconified windows. Once you get used to it, it becomes quite productive as you have a whole desktop to clutter with icons of minimized windows. and none of the application icons are one the way ;) That of course assumes that the default state is all windows minimized and when you need something you activate that particular window. When done, minimize it and select another window. Indeed quite different workflow.

I prefer the iconified windows myself. First on Olvwm, then MWM and now CDE. I find it an efficient way to work, however it is not for everyone but CDE will not get a taskbar.
