KDE "As the release of KDE 3.5 draws near [Ed.: article probably written before the release], work is already underway at the Appeal project to integrate 3.5's major changes into the 4.0 series. Subprojects beneath Appeal's umbrella target simplified usability and progressive adjustments to the graphical user interface: The Tenor and Plasma projects will add functionality, while Oxygen and Coolness will enhance visual freshness."

ion, hands down the most inovative window manager. It solves the overlapping windows problem and makes many other window management tasks very easy. It is a pretty radical departure from KWin or Metacity, but it only took me about a week to get used to it. I use GNOME, and I was able to replace Metacity with ion3.

Ion is an interesting idea, but even on my 17" screen I still prefer to have windows stacked and just ALT-TAB over them, especially when coding or working on website designs, you need all the room you can get.

However, I think KWin and Metacity should offer some method of arranging a few selected windows like Ion does.
