No, it's not. A lot of X window managers have the keyboard focus follow the mouse cursor automatically (that's in fact the classic behavior of the X Window System), which does not auto-raise windows necessarily. And yes, single click does
still raise the window, but I don't see how that would matter if you can get keyboard focus without raising.
You can get the same behavior on MS Windows with the Tweak UI Power Toy
. Just enable Mouse | X-Mouse | [x] Activation follows mouse (X-Mouse)
and disable [ ] Autoraise when activating
(you can also set a delay). I believe you can also do it by manually editing the registry, but Tweak UI is more comfortable.
