I thought there was a bug with the current implementation that has
slipped this release cycle. I understood the Frame was to reveal and
then as you alt-tabbed you could see the focus move between the
Activity instances (i.e. no switching has yet happened), and when you
finally release the alt key (on the instance you are really after, not
the Journal ;-b ), that instance is then focused.
I agree if you are just tabbing between 2 instances the frame reveal
is an unnecessary burden, but with 3 activities you'll probably be
focusing on something you don't want 50% of the time (at least most
kids will). More than 3 and you really are just ploughing the XO
through a heap of Activity redraws.
I couldn't find the original trac ticket for this, anyone remember
(wanted to go see where dev stalled)?
