I'm sure a few of you have seen this, on OS X platforms, I can only say that I've seen it in computer shops running demonstration Macs, since I don't actually have one myself
But on the little quick launcher panels (usually located bottom-middle of the screen), when you hover the mouse over the icons, they enlarge, with like a fisheye effect. I was wondering if there's any program that can bring this effect (or somthing similar) to gnome (gnome-panels)?
I know that KDE's kicker kind of does it in a very unsimilar way, by having the option to enlarge the icon when hovered, but its not the same, and running KDE just for the sake of having those effects would seem a bit pointless.
Perhaps other WMs have it? I've only tried Gnome, KDE, blackbox, fluxbox, enlightenment and xfce, and I didn't see anything similar in those...
I heard a rumour that there once was a program that could do it, but Apple got to them with some copyright issues? Could gDesklets do it? I've not been able to successfully install it as of yet, or under KDE, maybe Kambar (spelling?)
