    I just came across a news posting concerning Compiz/Beryl, a 3d window manager for Linux.

    It has a feature that allows you to browse through the windows of your currently running applications in a Coverflow style, see here.

    That's something I'd like too see in Mac OS as well.. make command - tab give me a coverflow view of my running applications. What do you think? Or is it even possible already, through some add-on?

    Ooooo very nice. But would it be any faster or indeed more useful than using the current command-tab method and expose. For me personally no. Less is more in this case IMO.

    I saw that as well (was it on digg) and was thinking the same thing. I usually don't like all the effects that are availble in Linux (cube etc.) but when i saw coverflow i thought it might work really well.

    Looks terrible to me. Reminds me of Vista's Flip3D. :eek: Expose is much better.

    I think it'd be pretty nice, if only for the novelty of it.
    But TBF Exposé does a damn good job.
    A little too similar to Flip 3D aswell ...
