I use kde because it's customizable.  This smacks of gnome "there's only 
one true way and it's our way" ideology.

As I (believe I) said in the other thread, tho, one way to disable the 
effect is to use window rules to hard-position things.  I do that for 
some windows, but it doesn't work well for windows like konsole where I 
very often work with two side-by-side windows on my primary monitor, and 
occasionally work with four windows, two on each of my main monitors (of 
three, the third the same resolution but half the size, used for full-
time display of a near-full-monitor superkaramba theme).

(Full screenshot of three full-hd monitors "stacked", 1920x3240, tho it 
shows pan with the kde lists open and claws-mail with the LXer feeds 
open, plus aurora/firefox in the background behind the semi-transparent 
claws-mail window, not konsole. )
