nemo [heart] screen. *nods*
However, I've recently been seduced (but not yet converted) to twin.
Text WINdow manager. It has the detachability functionality of screen
(albiet in a not-so-user-friendly commanline) with the GUI'ness of multiple
windows, all wrapped up in a bix text mode block. (console or X work well)
I haven't switched to it for everything yet (amongst other things, it's not
much use from a CRT.EXE window at work, unlike screen ;) but it's
I'd comment on the wmx window stacking proposal, but I can't think of
anything particularly relevant or usefull that hasn't already been proposed.
Personally, I doubt I'd use the feature all that much. (sometimes with
netscape maybe, since I run out of memory on my Xterminal if more than 2 or
3 netscape windows are alive at once)
I'd personally find more use in being able to tile multiple windows within a
single border. Could get messy when windows are different sizes though (ie,
most of hte time) ...but I'd love to be able to, say, gather all my gimp
windows in a single border and manage them as that single collective.
This harks back somewhat to the dock(ish) idea I proposed ages back.
