Kompose - The MacOS 'Expose' on Linux
People always say, why can't Linux have some of the same functionality as OSX ? Look at apple, see the path breaking innovations they bring out w.r.t usability. It is anybody's dream machine. And then, they go for the final kill - have you seen Expose at work on a Mac ? It's awesome!!
I personally like OSX too for the importance they give to usability and aesthetics. And I really like Expose on OSX. Which is the real reason for this post. Now Linux can also claim to have Expose like functionality in an application called Kompose. Kompose is an efficient full screen task manager which gives a graphical representation of the open windows on your desktop(s) at any given time.

"People sometimes ask me if it is a sin in the Church of Emacs to use vi. Using a free version of vi is not a sin; it is a penance. So happy hacking."
