What I hate about Windows

Apart from all the other obvious usual complaints (no shell, no pipes, bloat, clumsy scripting, bad user-permission support, etc.)…

What I hate the most has to be the shameless and flagrant waste of my desktop & visual real-estate that windows forces down my throat. Its as if they’re so in love with the idea of big fat top window handles, puffy oversized borders, a displacing taskbar that is somehow more important than every application I run, that M$ intentionally is constructing their OS’s as if to make love to themselves. How hard does it have to be to have a non-titlebar mode? (Like this: I use autohotkey to achieve this) Why does the “window” have anything to do with the OS or the application for that matter?

And same goes for those damn browsers. Why does the actual “browser” have to take up3/4 of the actual screen space, and not the website that I’m viewing? Why can’t I drag the webpage window from the browser onto the desktop in its own simple window-page-widget like thing, and I interact with it there when I need it?

Why is windows so… so.. WINDOWS???
