That was in Windoze 1. Version 2.x had overlapping windows.
But I guess there was no real need in Win2 for Alt-Tab, since you didn't have
enough memory to run more than 1 program at a time. If MS had implemented
alt-tab, I didn't notice it. But then, Win2 was such crap that I deleted it
after playing with for a couple of days.
