I've been STUNNED. Is it possible to make something similar in KDE or Gnome? Thank you;)

I've often wondered about getting window transparency working so well is possible.

Oh Microsoft! Always making amazing concept videos, then going ahead and doing something nothing.

Also, what's the trend with the overwhelming number of animated GUI elements?

well KDE4 has a framework for stuff like this, just depends on the widgets

you could modify some widgets , it shouldn't be to hard to replicate that

Windows is no where near that concept. kde has all the stuff w7 has even the bar thingy

anyway i find kde cool enough as it is, but they're always adding tons of stuff on each new version.

linux has a lot more potential now than that windows12 concept, i just wished our 3d drivers would be better

We can already apply RGBA transparency to virtually any GTK window contents, without patching. Windows can't do this; the program's UI must be rewritten to take advantage of Windows transparency.

I mean, sure, a couple of programs don't run with it or require patches; but the vast majority do, and that's something that puts us a major step above Windows in terms of eye-candy.
