Microsoft Scalable Fabric - Task management system for the Windows
Scalable Fabric is a task management system for the Windows desktop, from Microsoft Research. A central focus area, defined by you, contains windows that behave in the traditional way. When you drag a window into the periphery, it becomes smaller and continues to get smaller the closer you get to the edge of the screen. This makes it possible to keep windows open all the time, and change "minimize" to mean "return to the periphery". Groups of windows can easily be created to represent different user tasks. Switching between groups is done simply by clicking on the task marker flag.
Requires .NET framework.

Before installing this app you will need to download .NET framework 1.1 if you haven't already done so. (It will let you know if its required when you try to install Scalable Fabric). This can take up to five minutes or longer to install depending on your specs so give your self some time. Once completed you can then go ahead and install Scalable Fabric.
You will find the app in your start menu its an interesting app but if you want it to start up with windows you will have to copy the short cut over to the start up folder also situated in the start menu.

Your right as I did make that mistake while trying it out but the link is directing to 1.1 now. Thanks Andy.
