Really. Check out my desktop:

I made that video, that's my voice, get a clue.

Sorry but those are the most useless features I've even seen being showed off, for anything not just Linux. I watched it twice just to make sure. All that shows is useless gimmicky features are being added instead of sensible usability.

In fact it's worse than that if anything, since you yourself in it state recording while simply using the OS slows things down.

Wow, impressive.

Oh and I just have to add, the video wraps around the cube? That's such a great feature, I'm going to watch all my videos like that from now on.

Oh my god.

So, FRAPS doesn't drop your frame-rate when you are recording a game? Get a clue: my frame-rate while recording a full HD 1080p desktop dropped a little from "silky smooth" to "barely notice lag." Also, what I showed in that video are the mouse functions. All that desktop management also is controllable from the keyboard. I mostly do use the keyboard to switch back and forth between applications and desktops.

Of course you wouldn't watch a video wrapped on a cube, idjit, that was a contrived example to show the integration of the 3D desktop with applications that run within it. There is no equivalent to Compiz - the 3D desktop - on Windows that I know of. The functionality somewhat exists on Mac, but don't let being totally ignorant of how other systems work - even if you did watch the video twice - get in your way.
