No window manager inside a window

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 71.162.60.128] on October 14, 2007 03:08 AM
It seems that nowadays every program needs to fit a window manager inside it's window. It becomes very messy and unusable this way. Let the window manager do it's job and let the windows just be windows. Even tabs in firefox can become enoying: having to remember which firefox window contained what tab where. I see all this tab development largely as a short coming of many window managers (including winblows mess) to deal properly with the numerous set of windows that we use. Expose inside ooffice ? noway
