Again, I think Fedora should reject this change to Metacity.
I know that Redhat maintains custom kernel patches. Can we
have a Metacity that doesn't implement this nutty window management?
Does Fedora Core have any influence over the development decisions
of the Metacity project? Are we simply at the mercy of their whims?
If it's down to voting for one or the other, I can't stand applications
that steal the focus or the foreground. Try using internet explorer
while working in word, and see how distracting it is.
I have really become accustomed to indicating with my mouse onto which
window I want in front, and into which window I'd like to type.
Switching back to Windows or other wm's makes me crazy.
I do wish there were separate gestures (besides mouseover). So, I could
left click the title, for foreground and keyboard focus, and right click
for just keyboard focus. Or something.
