Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris "For some time now, I've been working with members of In Situ team to integrate their Metisse software in Mandriva Linux and it is really exciting. Mandriva will announce very soon (today or tomorrow) Metisse will be part of Mandriva Spring 2007 and is also available as a Live CD based on Mandriva 2007.0 and GNOME right now so everybody can try Metisse right now and report bugs."

<brewmastre: I'm sorry, but after watching the videos it looks like it's taking some useful but unoriginal ideas (Zoom/Tile = Expose) and some new but useless ideas(Mirrored windows) and making a window manager.

You don't have to be sorry for being confused. The bird's eye function is a full-screen desktop switcher, not a task switcher, with added functionality for app preview. I'm not quite sure about the usefulness of the mirror function but i guess you can get it without extra effort from the rotating function, for which i *can* see uses. Your other concern has already been addressed.

I haven't seen the copy & paste function yet, DailyMotion seems to choke.
