This sort of simple behavior doesn't have to go with a bloated environment. It's the biggest frustration-reducer since "placing windows within a few px of edges or other windows causes them to snap together" and "size window to max height/width without overlapping" options. Little things like this make managing windows much more pleasant.

Another feature I like, on several linux WMs, is middle-click maximise to maximise vertically only. But I think Windows doesn't do much with the middle button...

Which WM does "size window to maximum without overlapping"?
It's called maximumize in Compiz and it was there for over five years. Not sure about KDE.
