Re: Windows version of a compiz plugin
From what I can hear the latest windows (+30 bucks to a 3rd party) will give you a cube, not sure weather it actually functions or not (Multi desktop windows? That'll be the day)
The point you need to make is that everything windows has, it stole from linux.
The XP theme change, the vista theme change, the 7 theme change, were all stolen straight from Gnome, compiz and KDE respectivley (All of which had these at least a year before windows)
If you want to impress, google "Hack school computer" and demonstrate the 30 second route to getting an admin account on windows (Test it first, school security varies)
Gnome Shell would be impressive I think, but you shoulden't focus on flash, everyone thinks windows is flashier anyway... Despite the facts...
Show them a live CD "And this ladies and gentlemen, hasn't been installed yet..."
Show a couple of windows games working (Get someone with WoW to setup their account on it for example)
Demonstrate the package manager, if all this fails, you are in 6th grade
Also, If you want to get down & dirty, run multiple Xs, then just ctrl alt F1-F7 your way through them to demonstrate features...
I use terminator as my desktop (Lots of cheap hacks, don't ask) which looks cool... (Screenie follows...)
