    What is your favorite way of choosing between windows

    Hi, I was wondering what method people prefer to use when choosing between windows e.g. using a dock or gnome panel. I use both a dock (cairo dock) and the dockbarx gnome panel applet (the default winow list takes too much space. Also do you hav your gnome panel at the top and another at the bottom for you windows (the default configuration) or do you like to combine the two?


    P.s it wont let me add a poll for some reason...

    alt+tab for other windows... ctrl+tab for same window... keyboards faster if your hands are already on it.

    If you mean a workspace switcher , I add it only when needed from AWN on the bottom or the the Gnome panel on top .
