    KDE is not an OS, it is a window manager. It runs on several distributions of Linux and Unix including MacOS X.

    It's called excessive and annoying eye candy.

    KDE is a windows environment, and the 3D effect in that video is not limited to KDE, they are pretty much separate issues. 3D effects under linux is very nice, very flexible and very customizable, yet, its not super stable.

    leopard sure would enhance this sort of eye candy (since its a major attraction of OSX after all), but i doubt apple would make it as flexible and customizable, or offer as much features, as in linux, after all, apple need to pay 10x more attention to the stability and consider the different user base as linux distroes.
    obviously thats personal preferences, OP apparently likes it.

    KDE is a Window Manager and collection of utilities and applications which sits on top of an OS. While, it's certainly an improvement from the "old" X11 window managers, I don't know if I would assert that it is more advanced than the windowing capabilities and applications that Mac OS X provides.

    My personal feeling is that KDE is gimmicky and unpolished, and I have replaced it with the much simpler (and less distracting) XFCE on my one Ubuntu linux box.

    But to each his own, so feel free to enjoy it. :)
