and no, it is not all about choice, it is about about software freedom.
Choice is just a consequence, it mean the user have the choice to fork
and change the software, not that the developpers are _forced_ to offer
choices or anything besides the freedom of changing the source code.

More ever, the effect that we can see in the video are IMHO not the
effect of Windows 7 ( ie the spinning cube ). Microsoft would not add
useless effect at random place like this.
