Does it require Java? (now open source)?
Or did I dream that . . .
It is transparent - really needs that 3D graphics card and driver . . .
and hey it is different to the compiz . . .

no, metisse needs no java.
The Java based 3D desktop is called looking glass.
According to my colleague looking glass works in Muppy 008.3.

ah . . . that's it . . . thanks Mark . . .
- a very nice environment I think version 2 of Puppy is the last one I had 'Lokking Glass' working in - probably even better now . . .
Will it dance with Dingo?
