3D-Desktop is an OpenGL program for switching virtual desktops in
a seamless 3-dimensional manner on Linux. The current desktop is mapped
into a fullscreen 3D environment where you may choose other screens.
Several different visualization modes are available.
The transition from working desktop to fullscreen 3D environment
is seamless. In other words when the pager activates you see your
current desktop appear to zoom out to a point in space where you can
see your other virtual desktops allowing you to select another. The
best way to understand is to try it out and get the full effect!

README and Changelog.
Lastly please note you need XFree86-devel and Imlib2-devel
when compiling the source. See requirements below.
3d-desktop has not been in development for some time. Check out
Compiz though. It is a compositing
window manager that will give you a 3d desktop in a much more dynamic,
robust and not to mention very cool way.
