    i saw i video once of an app or program, it was like hundreds of videos on the screen all playing at once and moving around and you type in some of the tags and it sort of whittles them down, could also do it with pics, i think it was at a keynote or something i cant find it anywhere and its annoying me

    It was indeed at a Keynote. Steve was showing off Core Animation in Leopard.

    It's not a program, you can't get it.

    PicLens is an addon for firefox (support safari up to 3.0.4), its 3D wall feature (not available in safari) has some similarity of what you described, but I don't think it currently support playing all the videos at once tho.

    im not even sure if core animation can be put here comparing to an app that does certain thing.

    leopard, I think, already has this CA stuff. I don't know if its a necessity to do what you described.

    About PicLens for windows, ( sorry I missed your question, I was on my palm, not very convenient, :))

    ionlygreat already answered below, I just repeat it, PicLens is available for windows and OSX, but not Linux..... sigh.

    PS.Firefox's addons are mostly cross-platform, but still, Almost all of them support windows, slightly less support OSX, even slightly less support Linux. Quantitatively, on any platform, users have 2000+ choices...

    You can see Core Animation in numerous (Leopard Only) apps that have been released by developers. Core Animation is a Leopard only technology that makes it easier for developers to make swanky animations etc.

    You can read about it here:
