hy exactly do people want their windows going transparent, Microsoft?

It's an effect that's been in all the other windowing systems (X11 first, OS X's Aero more recently) for years now.

And it can be useful to see stuff in a background window while your focus is on the foreground. Without the background window having to spam alerts and messages all over the damn windowing system.

How's about this as a trivial example -- a semi-transparantefind dialog? Now you don't have to move the damn dialog box all over the screen to read text. The same goes for a lot of other dialog boxes inside apps.

WTF is that sidebar monstrosity? Looks like the retarded step-child of Dock meets Dashboard

I haven't looked at MS's particular implementation, but it's supposed to be just the same as any of the other sidebars out there (e.g. - Konfabulator, Apple's Dashboard, Google Desktop, etc.).

I used Google Desktop's sidebar briefly, but without a widescreen it took up too much real estate. I can't imagine using one unless you had a widescreen monitor, or ran at 1600x1200 (or higher).
