And not only that, different people have different hardware. On the desktop I use WindowMaker with sloppy focus and autoraise, because a) I've got the screen real-estate and b) a mouse. On my netbook, I'm running xfce with click-to-focus, because the screen is very small and usually there's no mouse attached. And on my phone, there's an entirely different window manager running -- I'd be very unhappy with xfce or WindowMaker there ;))
