You might be right. However, by labeling Kristian's, et al @ Intel's creation as "stupid", I fail to see how it adds value. Your use of the adjective is polarizing and shuts people down, despite the fact that you may indeed have a valid point. That's all - and this has nothing to do with the content of your message or your point, but merely the "tone" of your message.

If not that, in the least, be constructive and somewhat polite when aiming criticism at anything....
Am I wrong?

I just think they should consider the approach of other modern desktop systems, such as the approaches by Quartz (Mac) or Aero/DWM (Windows) or what they're called.
Also have in mind X (which I think they do, as many of them are also developers of X).
Also have in mind rio (windowing system in Plan 9) and maybe give a thought or two about PostScript.
