I had a chance to try this out the other day. It's not a bad start, but it would be much nicer if it leveraged the DWM API in Vista so that the virtual desktops would be "live" while the cube is spinning. The current version simply takes a snapshot each time you switch.

You're right Ryder, and on my Win2k I can see it taking the snapshot, coz the animation stops for a while; there is a slight delay. Windows on the cube ain't live indeed...

Yeah. That's the way it should be.
Except at that point, it won't be backward-compatible with XP/2k, but from a purely selfish standpoint, who cares about them anymore? ;P

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
