This is quite awesome, the push animation should be the default IMO for all OSX installations.

Oh, also: it'd be nice to be able to set a custom duration for the transitions.

This is pretty cool — now we can show all those people excited about Aero's eye candy what we've been able to do since they were stuck with XP. :) However, this could definitely use some sprucing up and rebranding, and perhaps a small utility app (even something thrown together with AppleScript Studio) to make it easier to change the settings. An English product page wouldn't hurt either. :P
