Maybe you noticed this video ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRTgFT... ) of some guy hacking the Desktop Window Manager in Windows Vista.
Vista's DWM uses DirectX 9 for drawing and presenting the Aero Windows.
We thought it's time to take this hack to the next level, to change the OS to Windows 7.
Unfortunately the Windows 7 DWM does not use this old-fashioned outdated technology. Instead we had to face the new and better DirectX 10.1 interface with the support of the "accurate" and "useful" documentation on msdn.
After a whole bunch of work we got this first demo to work.

//Edit
We added a new demo with source code and binaries!
