In fact, having windows with just "File Open.." on Windoze systems has already 
bugged me several times.  (If you don't use them immediately, but later, 
there is indeed no visible indication of which program they belong to.) IMHO 
that's a bug.

Agreed.  Show people the advantages of a KDE desktop, where you know which 
program wants you to choose a file. ;-)

The only disadvantage may be that people think: KDE (as a DE) is not so 
different, see: This KDE program is very similar to other Windows programs.  
But that's the price to pay for consistency I guess, which is a preliminary 
for a DE's usability IMHO.
