Yes, but how many open windows?
Authored by: David on Mar 31, '04 12:57:06PM

Well, I've currently go around 50:
Explorer - 10 windows
Safari - 13 windows (doesn't include tabs)
Address Book - 1
iCal - 1
Word - 2
BBEdit - 15
Terminal - 1
Mail - 2
Excel - 1
OmniWeb - 1
Finder - 1

but that is because the computer was slowing down (I'm pretty sure it is IE :( as I hardly ever use it). Normally, I've got 15-20 apps open. The only way I survive is using Command-Tab and the F11 key. :-)

IMHO, anyone who has under ten apps open isn't using their computer properly!

Right now, I have three finder windows, one Safari w/ 18 tabs open, two Firefox with a total of 42 tabs open (all but three in one window), the Mail.app window, five documents plus the floating windows in Word, two Terminals, Sherlock, Toast 6, one Preview w/26 pages, CarraFix, four BitTorrent, Addressbook, 2 iChat, Quicktime player (running, but no windows), VLC, two Photoshop windows, and one Adobe Imageready.

Not bad for an old Umax S900.

IMHO, anyone with 50 windows open at once needs to relax a bit and make more efficient use of their applications features. ;)
