do you mean the "section of window" ?
I know many (non-geek) people who use that.
At work we actually had to modify our (proprietary) application to make it 
work again (I think we turned all QMdiSubWindows into real X11 widgets by 
calling nativeParentWidget() or something like that), now they can again 
happily make screenshots of these windows for their presentations etc.
IOW, it is a useful feature.
