Description Marius Andreiana 2002-12-27 15:19:31 UTC
Most window managers, including metacity so far, allowed to move windows by
holding Alt and dragging it with mouse.

In phoebe this doesn't work anymore

Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-02 22:41:25 UTC
It's moved to the Windows key by default, you need to have chosen 
pc105 keyboard. 

Can be changed in Windows control panel, if you prefer Alt.

Anyway, deliberate decision, though it may be reevaluated at some point.

Finally a use for the Windows key <G>
