As of many of us know, Flip3D looks like a great feature on Windows Vista. I have played with Flip3D on Vista HP Pavilion laptop. There was some delays. I had also Googled reviews about Aero Flip3D, many users said it had slowed down there computer or there was a slight delay when launching the feature. The downsides of Flip3D was that you had to have the Aero Glass Feature on or Flip 3D would not work. Well the biggest disadvantage is obvious, its not compatible with Windows XP users. Well I have great news. I have found 4 similar applications and 1 in development. Here are links, pics and info of the applications: 1) TopDesk http://otakusoftware.com/topdesk/ "With TopDesk, you can harness the full power of your current hardware and experience Flip3D-like window switching on Windows XP and Windows Vista Home Basic." Available for $17.95. <I had evaluated this product and it was the closest to Aero Flip3D, but better> 2) SphereXP http://www.spheresite.com/ SphereXP has simple way of displaying windows inside a sphere instead a flat desktop. It also has more varities of displaying the windows of your choice, but a much higher price than TopDesk. Available for $29.90. 3) Madotate http://www.winmatrix.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=12357 Madotate is fairly a cool 3D Desktop Tool, allowing it to randomnly place windows according to their perspective. Fortunately this 3D Desktop Tool is Freeware and available for download. 4) Yod'm http://chsalmon.club.fr/index.php?en/Yod-m-3d-about By far my favorite . Yod'm is entirely different then all 3D Desktop Tools. Instead of placing Windows in a 3D aspect, the whole desktop turns into a cube and is able to flip around into a new desktop. At the same time you can have one application, such as Windows Media Player, open in one desktop and 3 others in the separate desktops. Great for Multi-tasking. The best thing about this application is that it's FREE! 5) Bumptop http://bumptop.com/ Bumptop is simply AMAZING, but it's still in development . It's kind of like playing a game and at the same time organizing your different formats of files. You can stack, throw, pull, and push files around with its intricate physical effects. You can see a video of Bumptop at work at the above link.
