Apple re-invents flashy-scrolly windows

I've been reading netnews postings about the long-awaited Apple
Macintosh System 7.0.  One of the new features in this release is in the
dragging of icons in the Finder (the Macintosh's window-oriented file
manager).  In the past, if you dragged an icon past the border of a
window, you'd be moving or copying the file to a different folder or
disk.  Now, if you slow down near the window border and continue to
drag, the window will scroll, so that you can drag the icon to a part of
the window that isn't currently visible.  Sound like any window system
you know?
