reflection was just an idea

1 Reflection is a concept for our next-generation GNOME and KDE compliant window
2 manager. Emphasis is being placed on correctness and design features. The
3 default configuration should look good and feel absolutely incredible.
4
5 Feature list:
6
7 BeOS-style partial top decorations
8 user-selectable left/right/center
9 No buttons on top decoration
10 no maximize/minimize/etc buttons visible by default.
11 rationale:
12
13 the close/etc buttons interfere with selecting the window
14 when it is small.
15
16 the buttons lock you down to clicking in a specific area
17 on the top bar (dynamic pop-ups, on the other hand, can
18 allow you to minimize mouse movement).
19
20 control buttons pop up automagically (by click?)
21 they are nice-looking controls
22
23 Crux-style left/right/bottom decorations
24 rationale: clean, small yet easy to grab.
