PAWS - Personal Application and Window System

PAWS - Personal Application and Window System

A small program I've decided to work on to release later this year. It was originally going to be my submission for NANY 2010 at DonationCoder.com, but I got involved and overwhelmed learning Java and did not have the time to do so.

PAWS is a window manager and dual-desktop emulator for Windows XP, Vista, and 7. It is my first project that manipulates other application's windows (GUIs), and I am taking the time to make sure I do it as well as I can. At the time of this writing, windows can be hidden and shown and a desktop switching animation is complete, with code laid out to do the switching itself (however this has errors and is disabled in my demo version I am showing to people).

At completion, PAWS should be able to handle up to 4 desktops as well as simply hiding and showing windows, however this is my first project into this so there are no guarantees whether or not I will be able to achieve that (or release PAWS at all).
