  Window (computing) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In computing, a window is a visual area, usually rectangular in shape, containing some kind of user interface, displaying the output of and allowing input for one of a number of simultaneously running computer processes.
Windows are primarily associated with graphical displays, where they can be manipulated with a pointer.
Many window managers also provide features for grouping windows so that they all act as one, and 3D window managers, such as Metisse and Project Looking Glass also allow the three-dimensional properties of a window to be changed (such as their rotation in the Y or Z axes).

 Window   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
A window is an opening in the wall of a building that allows light to enter a room and people to see out.
Very early windows were shielded with hide or cloth stretched over the opening or wooden shutters.
Mullioned glass windows were the windows of choice among European riches, whereas paper windows were so economical and widely used in ancient China and Japan.

The store is a store of information, and corresponds to the human computer's paper, whether this is the paper on which he does his calculations or that on which his book of rules is printed.
The reader must accept it as a fact that digital computers can be constructed, and indeed have been constructed, according to the principles we have described, and that they can in fact mimic the actions of a human computer very closely.
The digital computers considered in the last section may be classified amongst the 'discrete state machines' these are the machines which move by sudden jumps or clicks from one quite definite state to another.

 Welcome to FlashMobComputing.org
After the last computers arrived and were installed by 11:00am we used our custom software to began pooling the collective power of the computers to work on the Linpack benchmark, a mathematical application that is used to determine supercomputing speed.
Through a series of tests, we were able to run the benchmark on 256 of the computers and achieved a peak rate of 180 Gflops (billions of calculations per second), although this computation stopped three quarters of the way through due to a node failure.
Volunteer computers need to be tagged and associated with owners so that everyone gets their computer back at the end of the day.

 The Modern History of Computing
These human computers did the sorts of calculation nowadays carried out by electronic computers, and many thousands of them were employed in commerce, government, and research establishments.
In analog computers, numerical quantities are represented by, for example, the angle of rotation of a shaft or a difference in electrical potential.
In 1949, the Manchester computer was successfully equipped with a drum memory; this was constructed by the Manchester engineers on the model of a drum developed by Andrew Booth at Birkbeck College, London.

 What is window? - A Word Definition From the Webopedia Computer Dictionary
Windows can be arranged so that they do not overlap (tiled windows) or so they do overlap (overlaid windows).
Overlaid windows (also called cascading windows) resemble a stack of pieces of paper lying on top of one another; only the topmost window is displayed in full.
You can move a window to the top of the stack by positioning the pointer in the portion of the window that is visible and clicking the mouse buttons.

 IS PARALLEL COMPUTING DEAD?
If parallel computing is to survive in the new environment, a much larger fraction of sales must be to industry, which seems to be substantially less concerned with high-end performance.
These companies believe that if they need more computational power than they have on a single workstation, they should be able to get it by using a network of such machines.
So I assert that parallel computing is not dead--it is simply suffering through a period of growing pains.
