VistaSwitcher displays more readable thumbnails than Windows Flip3D or Alt-Tab

VistaSwitcher displays more readable thumbnails than Flip3D or Alt-Tab.
Beware that the built-in Windows Alt-Tab shows up as soon as 1 window is displayed, because the Desktop is always added as an additional window. VistaSwitcher filters out the Desktop and only shows up when 2 windows are displayed when it replaces the Windows Alt-Tab.
