Exclamation Solved: Unique type of OS !!
hiii guys ..!!!

Do any1 know here if there is any OS, in which multiple open tabs form into a 3D type viewing without any help of a graphic card n in which any open window blasts off when closed n its control panel tab burns out when closed .

Does any tech know such kind of Operating System ?

Sounds more like an interface enhancement, not something OS-dependent. There's probably something out there that will do this on Windows, likely OSX as well, and maybe even some Linux shells.

Your description is really kind of vague and hard to understand, but it sounds sort of like the 3D Flip feature in Windows Vista and 7:

NT is really a generic term for most of Microsoft's operating system (NT 3.1, NT 3.5, NT 4, 2000, XP, 2003 Server, Vista, 2008 server and 7) and your description above really doesn't match what NT does.

He's not talking about Windows NT, he's using 'nt' as some sort of *******ized abbreviation for 'not' (because I guess three letters is just too many to type).

So nick, what was the ultimate solution?

The one which I was searching was known as "Knoppix".

I installed it in my Virtual machine. I'm just gonna check all its features.

The thing about Linux distros is that you can use a wide variety of shells and interfaces with different versions (like Ubuntu, Redhat, Knoppix, and many others). While that may be the default shell for the Knoppix distro you have, like I said before, what's you're talking about are features of a shell, not the OS itself.

Yep. You can probably run that same Windows Environment on any Linux distro if you wanted to.

Yes, you can. As long as you have some variant of X windows running. The package that provides the effects shown is called Compiz and is available by default on most distros, and available one way or another on ALL distros.
