Switching Between Programs with Windows Flip

In past versions of Windows, you could press Alt+Tab to see mini-pictures of the open programs. You could then scroll to the program you wanted. Windows Vista has improved on this capability. You can now see live thumbnail versions of the windows rather than stagnant icons. You can also use this feature (called Windows Flip) to switch between programs.
