GazL,

Fair description! The Super Window can contain any application window whether similar or not as you have the choice to group them together as you wish, so say on a project you need the editor, timekeeping, spread sheet, PM tracking, the browser and a couple other apps open, you can put all that in one window, by project.

I usually group mine by the apps, not the projects but user has total control when opening a new window where to put it!

Cheers!

TBNK

This guy claims to be from northeast Texas. Nobody from northeast Texas can be trusted about anything. Especially about being sane or reasonably intelligent. DO NOT FEED THE TROLLS!

Some of the weird "legal" claims he made may have had people chasing down rabbit holes, but I don't think he was intentionally trolling. Just a case of poor communication, IMO.

Anyway, though we all have our inherent biases, I try not to judge people by where they live, or come from. You're all just crazy Americans to me! ¹

OP has bad info like this spread out all over the web. It's all just rambling nonsense and makes one wonder about the sanity of the poster.

Now those of us from South central Texas are quite trustworthy, that I can assure you

But they keep necrobumping their own threads and show a complete disregard for requests to provide output or somehow back their claims.
For years; look at its posting history:
vague problem, request handout => never follow up with additional info => keep nagging until someone passes the handout.
And they do the same thing elsewhere to generally poor reception, yet keep repeating the same pattern.
That's where the "intentional trolling" comes in.

Granted, this thread is particularly confused.
Others have been closed by moderators because of the described pattern (I assume).

PS: it has also come to light that TBotNik is running some shady "IT" business which, judging from their threads here, can't be anything but a scam.
I for one do not want to support this in any way.

I suspect it might be a parody of recent news.

Not sure what you mean, but it's not recent, TBotNik's been doing this for a long time, and I'm pretty sure he's serious.
I made a deeper analysis in this post but I won't post any website links.

I'm sure there is an Oklahoma versus Texas deal on stuff from jokes to football but try to keep it off technical forums please.

I was weak, and I'll try to resist in the future. It's not Texas vs Oklahoma, though. I'm also in Texas, but east Texas is not a pleasant place. On to Linux technical discussions...

Sorry, I was referring to the thread actually, and not the off-site links.
It was suspicious to me because the thread about forcing standards upon everyone started around the same time the recent security organization was being planned.
Which, I guess, will be doing more or less the same thing, forcing standards upon everyone.

All,

Please do not comment if you have not installed Kubuntu 14.04 and run/tested the "Super Windows" there as you have no idea of what this is all about, till you have used it!

Notice I said Kubuntu 14.04 as that is the only distro I know that actually has it!

Cheers!

TBNK

@TBotNik
OK according to ubuntu version history this desktop you're talking about is called:
Quote:
a Unity 8 developers' preview
It would appear the 'Unity' was discontinued and the feature you want went away with it.
You could possibly fork this feature into another project because the license is permissive, or if you can't :find someone else who can.

Still waiting for you to expand on the subject of post #7.
There's no way any distribution is bound to some desktop standard which forces them to include a "Super Windows", I would even dare to call it FUD.

Kubuntu is the separate KDE spin of Ubuntu. So it would appear that "super windows" is in fact KDE rather than Unity?

I can't believe this thread is still alive. It does have a bit of comic merit I suppose. I would definitely call "Super Windows" FUD since there is absolutely no "standard" for this, much less one forced by any IT body. Also, no one has ever heard of it except for OP. The troll appears to be well fed...

Well it uses the same software packages as ubuntu 404 as it's binary compatible, so that is why I assume this was pulled from ubuntu repo.
Super windows thing was never a part of default kde, at least not in any distributions I've seen.
Figure it might be something custom that kubuntu made a default? I think it's either that, or the OP pulled unity from the ubuntu ppa.
