CubeDesktop: http://www.cubedesktop.com

It's basically a rip off of Linux's Compiz Fusion: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compiz_Fusion

It looks like the Aero 3D in cube shape. Is that the idea, that you can pull up different windows fast or does it even allow to install multiple desktops?

It's like multiple desktops i think :)
Geek has an article on one which is kinda cubic
The old link he used to have became broken i think - pretty sure the software went bust :(
Here you are!

Thanks Aleeve. Sounds neat for those who like eye candy. As you know, I like it "plain".

It's just the Linux Compiz Fusion 3D cube that supports virtual desktops. The problem is that since it requires the Aero interface it needs hardware that supports Aero - mainly a DX9 video card with at least 128MB RAM. Newer onboard video (GMA 3100) supports that.

The Linux Compiz Fusion 3D cube works through OpenGL and even dirt old hardware will work with it.

I know!
I am quite similar - everything has to be neat and orderly, and although I don't mind a little sparkle, that would be annoying and get on my nerves!
I also disabled flip3d, although I think that is a standard Vista operating procedure now!
