Windows 7: Is it possible to have physics inside of Windows 7?

Is it possible to have physics inside of Windows 7?

I've tried searching, but to be honest I'm not quite sure how to word it and haven't been able to come up with much.

Essentially, I'm looking for a program that will introduce friction into Windows. As in, if your dragging a window and you let go it will keep sliding, or possibly collision detection, etc, or something similar. Hopefully that isn't too vague, if anyone has any ideas that would be great!

I believe you are looking for something like this.

I don't understand how that would be good in any way. It's not even an instance where "It looks good, but takes up resources". An idea like that could possibly become one of the most annoying GUI elements ever.

would be an interesting concept for windows 8\midori, i get what they're trying to achieve but a bit unnecessary. i'd turn a feature like that off tho.

Today scientists describe the universe in terms of two basic partial theories - the general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics... The general theory of relativity describes the force of gravity and the large-scale structure of the universe, that is, the structure on scales from only a few miles to as large as a million million million million (1 with twenty-four zeros after it) miles, the size of the observable universe. Quantum mechanics, on the other hands, deals with phenomena on extremely small scales, such as a millionth of a millionth of an inch. Unfortunately, however, these two theories are known to be inconsistent with each other - they cannot both be correct
