Are you using Unity 3D edition? If yes, you already got viusal effects activated (like a good looking alt-tab windows). You can play with these effects by using CompizConfig SettingsManager (from Software Center). But be carefull. It's easy to break your settings and thus leaving you with a non working environment)
If you're usind Unity 2D edition you have to select the 3D edition on the login screen.
