    Can’t wait for wobbly views in my IDE 😉

    That is a pretty cool looking demo. But help me out with understanding what is the practical advantage of implementing SWT in OpenGL? I would certainly never want my IDE views to “ripple” like that, even though it is a “wow” effect.

    Well, that would be a great effect if you want to make the user believe they are dreaming or having a flashback. 🙂
