Why Waste?

We have such fast computers these days, so I guess we may as well waste our clock cycles on things like a 3D desktop. Personally, I prefer no desktop at all.

Choice is a beautiful thing. Smile

re: 3D Desktop Effects

I've yet to see a single usability report come out with facts showing a 3D UI is more effective at ANYTHING (on any platform).

I'll save my clock cycles for something more useful.

Can be useful

Depends on what 3D Desktop effects you're talking about. Zooming is quite nice and I could see it being quite useful to a lot of people. Wobbly windows on the other hand fall under pretty until you get annoyed and turn it off.
