There is no need to be aggressive or passive-aggressive about this. Non-native English speakers may not always say things in the perfect and clear way, but we all understood (or guessed) what was meant.
No it does not. I’ve never heard anyone interpret passive aggressive as “not aggressive”, passive is not the same as inactive. For example a passive sensor does not mean “inactive sensor” and neither does it mean that in this context.
Passive aggressive is a massively traditional British way of behaving. That is to state something in a non-aggressive way, but that implies aggression. Like “I really would prefer if you didn’t behave like that”, but said in a matter of fact time of way with no emphasis. It actually means “stop doing that now, and if you don’t we will have a problem.” This is a nuance non-British English speakers often completely miss (and by non, I would say other nations that speak English as their first language also miss the nuance.) Sarcasm is often also used - like “Yes, PLEASE carry on behaving like that.” Not said in an aggressive tone, subtle, especially if you don’t note the sarcastic tone. This is why British people are always being interpreted as overly “polite” by North Americans, when we are being anything but polite. They are just not “in” on the “joke”.
Nah, i did not wanted to start an ideology war here, @PulkoMandy have right, my comment have some agressive vibes, i agree but it wasnt my intention, i just simply hate if somebody states his own wish as General Global Truth. We are discussing here, so any idea should be grounded with arguments, simply stating “XY is required” should not be used here, from my POV.
But @PulkoMandy have right with the language barriers too.
Such things belongs to Absolute.
All other truths are personal.
And there is no other truth, only different levels of understanding of reality, again, a personal thing.
… What I’ve suggested is obviously my opinion, it’s my understanding of how a GUI should work on a modern OS (with additional Haiku features).
… I will add that “window clutter” was already a problem of BeOS: it required additional attention and actions.
… So what we could discuss here is what is the reality of that GUI. What is useful and how useful, what is effective and how effective. How to make Haiku’s GUI as user-friendly and efficient as possible.
Before this thread has to be closed because it descends into yet another flamewar let me quickly ask an on topic question
I thought we already have window tiling, I use this feature quite regularly. Is the tiling feature the OP is asking for something else?
Yes, what he means (I think) is window snapping to left half of the screen when pulled to left screen border (snap to side) or windows being arranged so that they cover the screen completely (eg 4 windows one quarter screen each, three windows one on the left half screen, the other 2 a quarter on the right each)
Moving windows with the keyboard ok, would be nice.
The “snapping to side” could be something which was allowed to be enabled/disabled. It is annoying when you need a windows to be at just that position and Windows insists on attaching it to the border.
