This is just a mockup.

Maybe this could make use of some Krita algorithms, if they are fast enough, see:

If you use this algorithm for window thumbnails, you can detect the different colors.

But I think it would be too slow :/

As an additional switchable option, that would be cool :-)

I like the idea of using this in conjunction with an ARGB-enabled theme to give the illusion that the light that hits a window is actually passing through it, casting a colored shadow on the area behind.

i have absolutly no knowledge about how to do this, bit i think this shouldn't be very hard for the x-server itselfs. but the window manager will have much work to do this, as i think he doesn't know anything about what is insight the windows.

But i really love this idea. would be really great it this could be done :) Thanks for the idea

Thank you :)

Maybe it won't be impossible, because you can make use of window thumbnails.

maybe it's better to leave a traditional shadow as it is, adding some higly transparent colored glow, based on content color
so it would look like tv)
this could be done using some fast blurring techique

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
