A 3D Desktop

Just yesterday I came across this 3D desktop from Sun. Called Project Looking Glass, Sun claims it ‘will bring 3D windowing capabilities to the desktop to offer a far richer user experience for work and “play.” But, it’s not only about “eye-candy,” it’s about creating an engaging user experience, one that can make communications and collaboration even easier.’ Well I had a look at the video and it looks nice enough. But the burning question remains, will it be fast enough to run on my desktop? From my experience with Java, any progarm takes at least twice as long to run. In the demo video, we see multiple videos running simultaneously. IMHO this is possible only if they have a couple of Sun Solaris machines doing all the processing in the background. Well feel free to correct me if you think I am wrong!
