them w/o the mouse.
Gnome at least supports it.

KDE supports it... And Tru64 supports it... I'd be surprised if any windows manager doesn't.

yes yes, we all know that the window managers can do this.

My complaint still stands..... but that's just my opinion.

Maybe I just haven't mastered the "beauty of window managers".... to much to learn, to little time I guess.

Your complaint about the number of terminal windows? Just have
two in your "coding desktop/virtual window/workspace/whatever
your WM calles it", one to code and one to test. Any good WM
can handle a bunch of virtual desktops.
This is very weird for me. I don't normally defend window
managers, I'm usually at the console. . . oh, well.

Yeah, I'm usually at the console too. But once I've learned how to use the windows manager, specially one as developed as KDE, i started to do certain things from there... like network adding hardware. (I know how to insmod and modprobe the modules... i just find it easyer from there)

anyway, pretty much everything else I do from the console (or a terminal when Ihave the XFS server loaded... hehe, why waste it?)
