This has some potential. I like it so far, but everything else (windows, apps, etc) seem out of place since they don't have the same viewing angle. If a web browser window looked like it was on the bumptop desktop, that would look very nice and fit in with the theme.
It was super fun to play with... for about 10 minutes. I can see that it has potential for people who work best with "organized chaos". I like having my files neatly tucked away under about 4 subfolders.
cant manipulate files between the dock and bumptop=fail you cant even drag things to the trash which means everytime you want to trash, or unmount a disk you have to right click and do it through the menu...i prefer drag and drop
BumpTop, the popular physics-based 3D desktop environment for Windows, has now been made available for Mac OS X 10.5 and later, offering users new features for organizing their desktops. BumpTop offers users multiple surfaces on which to store files, allowing users to alter the sizes of individual items and take advantage of several organizational features such as piles.
I completely agree. I tried this out and deleted it after one day. Visually, it's a train wreck. The perspective of your different desktop items is off and it was just an aesthetic mess. Plus, I'm not really sure how useful it is, at least for me personally. Then again, I don't keep a bunch of items on my desktop. Maybe if you had hundreds of items, the stacks and different walls would be useful. But, I just didn't like it very much.
