Tanaka posted a picture of FFXIV in the background and a webpage showing weather in the foreground.

It's on his twitter here:

If it was a whooshing, it was probably one of the most lame whooshings I could have imagined. I think maybe someone was just trying too hard.

Edit: More newsworthy than the fact that you can tab out of FFXIV would appear to be the fact that Taanaka was either playing as or was targeting a character named Angie Jolie. Could it be that Tanaka-san has a crush on her? More at 11...

Any game that runs in full screen and you do alt+tab will minimize the game. Since you still see FFXIV in background it is windowed. I don't recall there being full screen support for the alpha yet.

Edit: I wish I can see the character, I wonder if it does look like her.

He has 4 dogs, and they all look alike.

And btw: who says that Tanaka signed the NDA?

The fact that he's using what looks like the very first version of Internet Explorer cracks me up.
Did you lose faith?
Yes, I lost faith in the powers that be.
But in doing so I came across the will to disagree.
And I gave up. Yes, I gave up, and then I gave in.

Thank god I stopped playing MMOs.

I'm pretty sure the IEv1 had neither tabbing support, nor Google search. It's just a skin. Some people like the old school look.
I will wake up at six a.m. again.
and I will find my way to the front door
like a soldier crawling through the smoking carnage.
smoldering bodies at my feet,
I'd love to stick around, but I've got someone to meet.
and I will put my best foot forward.
and I'll thank god I made it out of there
on the day when my new friends come.

That's the current version of i.e. under classic view. I use classic view on my compy and minimal window effects. I don't use i.e., I use firefox, but if I open i.e. that's basically what it looks like. Except, you know, with english instead of japanese.
