    Follow this link, and be surprised, like I was when I stumbled onto it, by the resemblance between what this study explores and what Exposé does. I found this link when I was working on my final project for school, for which I've been designing a user interface for a certain Dutch integral traffic platform.

    BTW: Next step will be the incorporation of Pad++, another very cool initiative in the field of desktop management. Check it out here.

    Anyone cares and/or dares to comment?

    Its nice idea.
    It actually goes past expose, which is just to find windows, whereas this actually manages the windows to prevent overlap...it could get annoying though...moving all the other windows around, and you could never have a full-screen window in that system either...but it does look interesting.

    It's similar, but not the same thing at all.

    This model is based on user movement of windows, rather than system window management.

    Pretty neat idea, though.

    I don't mean to say anything, but wasn't that the problemwith Windows 1.1-2.0? That the windows couldn't overlap?
