Screencast of ThumbWin, Windows Thumbnail Minimizer

Check out this screencast of ThumbWin, a Windows XP/Vista application that lets you minimize windows and have them appear as a bar of thumbnails:

Used properly, ThumbWin could be a cool alternative to a Dock or Start Menu. I particularly like the Bring To Front option, which brings all windows, not just those minimized, to the front as thumbnails. If the development team keeps working on that, especially as it comes to windows effects and hotkeys, it could even be an Alt-Tab replacement. Make this in WPF and I’m sold.
