Eyecandy / Features
by Me It's Me on Thu 24th Mar 2005 14:24 UTC

These video show eyecandy... maybe some think it's useless but try to understand what is possible... the swinging windows are neat but it's the live pagers that show whats possible why wouln't you want to monitor what goes on live on your virtual desktops without the performance hit?... and I think eyecandy can be effective when used correctly... like toolbars that are transparent when not in use eg. office on OSX. This is technology that will mature and be a part of everyday computing.
