I'm running Jaunty (9.04). the alt+tab effect looks very bad. Is there a way to change the alt+tab effect? maybe make it look more like a mac?

Are you running Compiz? – Matthew Talbert Sep 26 '09 at 1:09
What exactly do you mean when you say "bad"? – innaM Sep 26 '09 at 9:24

You want to install Compiz.

First enable proprietary drivers;

Go to System > Administration > Hardware Drivers, then click "Activate" for any drives provided.

You can then follow the compiz guide here.

Use ccsm (as shown in the guide) to change all manner of compiz settings, including the alt-tab decorator.
