Currently, I'm using the centered windows placement mode, as my focus is usually in the middle of the screen and I don't feel comfortable of the currently implemented smart windows placement mode, as the latter tends to pop up windows in the periphery of the screen, e.g. in the upper left hand corner, which I find very annoying, because I have to move the window then more to the center.
Ok, why am I not completely happy then with the centered windows placement mode? Well, if you open two instances of the same program (e.g. two konqueror windows), the latter instance of konqueror perfectly covers the earlier one. With the centered mode, all windows are stacked up in the center, so one tends to forget about undelying covered windows.
I therefore propose a smarter "smart windows placement mode". What I mean by smarter is, that the windows should pop up very close to the center, but not cover each other completely as is possible with the centered mode. How close to the center is probably a matter of taste - maybe a parameter to be chosen by the user with an advanced configuration button?
Thanks for your attention!
