GNOME is not a window manager
1 minute read

Wouter blogged a bit about how he has problems with using GNOME because it lacks sloopy focus. Really, what you are complaining about is that metacity doesn’t have sloppy focus. Then use a different window manager. Please just change what you have in /desktop/gnome/applications/window_manager/current to E or whatever you prefer. I run a perfectly usable GNOME desktop with openbox as my WM. Works fine, and I have sloppy focus. I don’t like flipping desktops with my mouse so I haven’t investigated how to do that.
