How to disable centering new windows?

And may it be configured particularly? For example for all windows - centering is normal, but for skype and empathy - not so..

Elementary OS Jupiter 0.1. (downloaded from the site page)
window manager... hm.. shame to me.. how to know it?

I Think it's metacity (what is wm by default in Jupiter?)

The "default" wm depends on hardware support, if you've got 3D accel enabled, it's compiz, if not, metacity.

But it doesn't matter, because the only wm that supports (and enables) center placement is Compiz. So, go into CCSM and open the "Place" add-on's settings and change it from there.

Can you help with this problem?
