Does anyone know where to get the desktop background effect that is used in the Dashboard demo? As the user in the demo places the widgets, you'll see the liquid effect.

this is a standered feature if u have the supported video cards from the core imagage...

basicly the only way you are going to see the dripple effet is if u have a g5 imac or better...

no doubt, try 12" PB or better.

The only current machines that don't support it are the Mini, eMac, and iBook

Thanks for your quick responses.

I have a mini, so I'll have to put that on my wish list. I'm a second time convert to Mac from PC. The first time around I bought the 15" Powerbook the day they came out. It'll already be two years in September since the new design....hard to believe. I had to sell it because of financial problems. This this time around I took a low key approach and bought the mini.....so not as high performance.
