Sloppy-Focus (Focus-Follows-Mouse). If Apple implemented that one feature, I’m pretty sure I’d recommend Macs to everyone. But all indications are that Focus-Follows-Mouse without Autoraise isn’t coming any time soon, since for some reason the Apple UI doesn’t recognize a difference between focused and foreground. Steve Yegge (no, I don’t know him, I just found the article in my search for some way to get sane behavior from my new window manager) has a very informative article on his blog about the subject. To solve this problem, I will be turning to linux when I get a chance over Thanksgiving. Pre-emptive Fedora FTW!
