Haiku's GUI is in principle entirely scriptable. You can change a window's position and size and manipulate pretty much every widget in it. The tool to do this is hey. It sends BMessages to an application, thus emulating what happens if the user clicks on a menu, checkbox, or other widgets.

And some of us don't want such superfluous crap. All i want my window manager to do is manage windows. I don't need them transparent, or rainbow coloured. Haiku's Window manager does things right. All the "innovation" has been focused on making "managing windows" as powerful as possible, and not on crap like aesthetics. Sure, it looks like it came out of the 90's, but how many other OSes allow you to stack and tile a whole combination of applications?
