c) "Focus follows mouse", I can be typing into a background terminal,
while reading from the man page in the foreground.

d) Centre click the titlebar to send a window to the back.
Still haven't figured out how to get that on a Mac and it frustrates me.

e) Multiple desktops is much better integrated in X
than any of the add-ons for Mac or Windows,
but it still needs more work. (to tie an application to a desktop)

X rocks.

No matter how much you pay for software,
you always get less than you hoped.
Unless you pay nothing, then you get more.
