    Funky desktop effect, how?

    Does anyone know how to do the funky 'rotating' windows thing? You layer the windows one behind the other on the desktop and they rotate to bring focus on the one you want to work on.
    I just want to show off.

    I like Aero/Glass too.. just don't think there is a place for it in the school environment. When we do eventually deploy Vista, I'll probably use it without the Glass

    Why they havent included an XP style theme in Vista I don't know.. cos i would have used that instead of Aero.
