Hi all, I’m trying out MATE, as it’s one of the few relatively-modern DEs that has a traditional UI, and I really can’t stand the half-baked hamburger-menu hell of most DEs (sorry for ranting).
I’m coming from using i3wm for a few months, so overlapping feels a bit weird to me. I’m not looking to replace tiling functionality, but rather, I’m looking for a way to reproduce the classic Mac OS X “Exposé” feature, where all windows are shown. I’m familiar with Skippy-XD, and I can try that out again, but that always seemed a bit hacky to me. I wouldn’t mind running Compiz again, if it has a feature like that, and if it’s well supported in MATE.
What do you guys use?
