All,

Oh the IISC is legally cracking down, but understand it has over 1 Billion law suits pending, so eventually they will catch up to/with all offenders.

PS.
If you think about it, it is the IISC, which is user friendly and pro-user of you will see other countries start imposing laws that will attempt to restrict on political, religious or other user-unfriendly reasons for laws.

TBotNik: What do the letters in "IISC" stand for, and where is the IISC's homepage?

Hopefully I understand now. I think you are referring to the activities overview or overview mode feature of the desktop. Pressing the superkey, application menu icon, the activities key or moving the mouse to the top left hot corner. You will see all of your open windows and applications for that workspace.

https://help.ubuntu.com/stable/ubunt...uction.html.en

As far as I know this is a feature of the desktop. Different Ubuntu versions use different desktop/versions and therefore features changes.

It's called "Mission Control" on OS X.

I'd like a citation for these 'law' and 'lawsuits' claims.

Most of these posts are completely non-sensical. I always fall for the bait though and respond...

All,

I found this info/install/howto page at:

And these Window Manager Apps seem to be the closest to what the requirements are.

Be installing and testing these!

Cheers!

I don't see how this has anything to do with "super X-Windows", and you never clarified what you actually want to achieve.
Apart from that a few forum users, me included, still wait for you to show us any proof that "Linux is now legally bound to a standard", or in any fact any proof of the existence of an IISC - I guess you didn't mean the Indian Institute of Science?

About your "legal requirement" though:

I'm stilling waiting for you to show us any proof of that.
Until then I call shenanigans.
ondoho,

I've said, and I guess not plainly enough theat I don't give a $$%^&* about "Hot Keys" as I never ever use them, but only care that I have the "Super Windows" so I can properly work. The confusion is that someone mislabeled the keyboard "Windows Key" as "Super Windows" and it is not, it is simply another "hot key" shortcut.

To properly named that would be "Windows Key Shortcut(s)"! To be properly defined: "Super Windows" are desktop windows that contain other windows allowing "grouping of windows" within a Super Window.

Cheers!

Yep. You clearly invented the whole "legal requirement" thing, and now cannot admit being wrong.
For what purpose I cannot fathom.
You certainly aren't fooling anyone here, except possibly yourself.

I can't really tell what the post is about to tell you the truth.

I have been confused from the very start of this thread. Time to pour another glass of wine...
