Windows Wiggle

In Windows 7 there is a feature called Wiggle. I haven’t heard much about it, an I found it on my own by accident one day when I was moving some windows around in a hurry. I’m not sure what Microsoft calls it, but I call it Windows Wiggle. I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s what it’s called either, as the only thing you have to do to activate this feature, is Wiggle a window around, and it’s neighbors scatter. Kinda like when when you put a rubber snake in the dryer and your mom scatters laundry everywhere when she finds it…

This Screencast I made shows how easy it is….

      Yep! Sure did, but Windows didn't, and that's what this article is about.

      I would make an article about something cool in Linux, if there was anything that was both new and cool. Unfortunately Linux already has about everything you can imagine, except large market share on desktop operating systems. So sadly until that day arrives, I'll be focusing on Windows here.

      I'm a Linux fan, but I understand that everyone is not.
      IMO there are too many distros, if there were only 1 that received everyones attention, I believe it would own hands down. I think Linux's time is still emerging however. Once 90% of applications are web-based, Windows may very well go bye bye, Or at least, open source! 😀
