Microsoft Linux isn't a threat to Windows on the desktop and is losing steam on the server as customers separate the operating system from the development model, according to Microsoft's chief platform strategist.

Can I have wobbly windows and 3d cube virtual desktops that spin in Vista?

Yes you can.

Wobbly windows: Do not install a graphics driver.

Spinning desktop: Place your monitor on a Lazy Susan, then spin it. The cube is the hard part.

:) Nice comment, SEJeff. You are absolutely right.
