Thinking about the desktop metaphor on everyday personal computers, the last 30 years there have been "windows" on desktops. First on XEROX PARC research machines, later on LISA and Macintosh computers and some UNIX machines. After some time the average PC user could have windows on his home computer with Windows 3.1. It took only a short time and the whole world's users were having windows on their machines with Windows 95.

But why are we having "windows" in a "folder" on our (metaphorical) "desktop"?

"Need to close a window" fuses both kinds of windows together. Through a simple sticker.

This is a small project to pose the question, how a desktop metaphor paired with windows came about. The Mac- and Windows-like stickers showing the window control icons are made transparent, so you can put them on actual windows.
