Desktop image redundant in Flip 3D

Submitted by Smugglarn on January 12, 2009 to Aesthetics, Annoyance, Usability

The inclusion of an image of the desktop in Flip 3D is unnecessary, ugly and blocks the other windows.

*the W7 command making all the windows transparent makes it even less necessary

Do not agree. It can be useful to show the desktop (even if there are several routes to do it).

I find it quite useful.

It is there so one can switch to it, just like in ALT + TAB.

Nerds that do not have a clue about usability and design is why windows will always look a bit shit.

@Smugglarn, why because we don't agree with you?
The inclusion of the desktop in the switcher serves a purpose.
