    Nope, not really Not realistic to use those either - software these days won't run on those

    I find getting things done is best achieved when windows aren't wobbling and flying about everywhere, and things are a lot quicker and more responsive when extra effort isn't put in to making the former bells and whistles perform

    I dont know, we have tranparency here, and as soon as we put it on the students stopped moaning about the fact that it was Linux, heres a rubbish screenshot showing some transparency: http://linuxgfx.co.uk/project/atagla...nuxdesktop.png

    That saying, I don't thinkI will install beryl (which does the funky, rolling windows etc... more can be seen here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=ZD7QraljRfM) as we would have problems with students swapping desktops etc!! They would play around so much that wouldn't get any work done!!

    Something similar for XP:

    ... of course, there's no way that MS would have copied it *cough cough*
