    When I give presentations, more often than not peopple end up asking me if there's a Windows equivalent for the cool apps and effects they see on my PowerBook. I often can’t answer them, so I'm asking the guys here on PhilMUG:

    What is the Windows equivalent of…

    Quicksilver?
    Exposé?
    BluePhoneElite?
    Salling Clicker?

    My thanks in advance.
