The site Free Download a Day has a rather interesting offering today - a program that simulates in XP the task switching 3D glass effect of Vista.

The program is called WinFlip. Its very small and doesn't need installing, merely extracting to a folder and running. In operation it puts an icon in the tray and , defaults to using Win-Tab (can be made to use Alt-Tab in its options). It doesn't appear to write anything into the registry keeping its settings in the local folder.

Doesn't seem to compromise my computer's operation or speed.
