There have been lots of real attempts to move the desktop to 3D; personally I think some of them have been quite good. I'm not sure if Vista even registers compared to these.

For example BumpTop: [link] which looks like it may have been inspired by an Apple idea: [link]

Sun's Project Looking Glass: [link]

Even Acorn had a prototype 3D desktop environment on a Clan CD (released at Acorn World in 1997 if I recall correctly), but I can't find any links to it. Does anyone know what happened to this?
