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.
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.
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.
You talk the talk, but do you waddle the waddle?
Going forward, Tux Machines does not have ads. Instead it relies on readers' support and is run as a public service.
