I personally find the Flip 3D feature in Windows Vista pretty useless in every aspect, but I found some individuals that loved this feature. The Flip 3D is much slower than…everything and in my opinion, it’s very ugly. If you don’t know what Flip 3D is, you can use it by pressing winkey+tab, but I assure you, you didn’t missed anything.
While there are several good clones out there, I advise you to completely remove Flip 3D from Vista by just applying a registry patch.
Download the “Disable Flip 3D in Vista” registry patch
Be advised that the 2 files present in this archive will allow you to either enable or disable the Flip 3D in WIndows Vista.
