I stumbled upon this program called SphereXP which is basically a 3D desktop replacement for Windows XP. http://www.hamar.sk/sphere/
If you take a look at the screenshots they look pretty awesome => http://www.hamar.sk/sphere/sphereshots.htm
Now I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with this program? When the windows are in cool 3D mode, are they really just still "screenshots" of the apps or can you actually use them while they're floating like that?
Alternatively, for those Unix people out there, Sun Microsystems is developing a Java (yuck!) based desktop environment that is completely in 3D => http://wwws.sun.com/software/looking_glass/index.html
But of course that is just a rant considering this is the WinXP forum afterall ... so back to comments about SphereXP it is!
