Well, KDE for Linux has something it calls 'Desktop Effects' as part of its 'plasma' desktop bundle, but I think you have to download and use the entire KDE bundle to use it well. I've heard and seen how KDE does not play well with other desktop versions, so maybe you have to uninstall the other one first. The only distro I know of which lets you turn it on and off on the fly at boot, is PCLinuxOS, but go to that forum and ask around for more info, as I just got booted from there.
(I must have said something wrong but don't yet know what, or else was deleted by mistake, so can't ask for you. I did complain about that feature, as I was told to install something called 'task-mate' and when I did, my machine got pretty much bricked. Took me all week to fix it, wasn't a happy camper while posting.)
That's a good distro, offers 'Session Type alternative desktops at signin, but it's kinda complex to install and use. Mint has a similar feature and also has a KDE version but I don't think it offers a desktop wardrobe like PCLinuxOS does.
For Windows, as far as I know that feature began in Windows 7 and is part of the OS, which you can turn off, named 'Snap'.
