GNOME: Effects...


I was wondering... is there a program that does the same effect that Mac OS X dows when user-switching? but instead of user-switching in GNOME (or any environment) it would be Desktop switching? (in case u are unfamiliar with the effect... its a cube turning to the side, and every side is a different user....)

Sounds like you need the 3d desktop app.

What distro are you using and what changes did you make?
