You aren't alone - having edited the URL I couldn't load the page in Firefox - I think it was down or something as it now works fine.
I am enjoying playing with 'Microsoft Scalable Fabric' which is down the page some way. It is a new desktop organiser that allows you to group windows into 'tasks' and also to drag windows to the side of the screen in a reduced size format (effectively keeping windows on the destop rather than minimizing to the task bar). The 'tasks' groups of windows can be restored or 'put away' en masse.
It gives the illusion of piles of paper across your desktop. It is still an app waiting to be fully devloped but it is neat and quite fun.
Not sure I would keep it running for ever though.
Might be very useful for people with two monitors.
