BumpTop Mac Makes Your Desktop A 3D Entity

Mac OS X: Like its Windows 7 counterpart, the BumpTop desktop replacement arrives on OS X with all kinds of ways of manipulating and organising files, folders, images and applications. It also integrates with the Mac's own window-handling tools.

BumpTop's Pro version, $US29, gives MacBook users access to a range of multitouch features, similar to what Windows 7 users can do on a multitouch screen. But the free version still delivers a different experience for your desktop. Folders, pictures, drive icons — anything, really — can be pinned to your three walls, the desk surface, and piles of documents re-arranged with a tap of the mouse (or finger). When you get mad at the Parkerson Project, pick it up and fling it across your desk at the wall — just like in real life!

Here's a video take on BumpTop's Mac version:

BumpTop Mac is a free download for the basic version, while the Pro version, which also features as-you-type desktop search, is $US29. If you try it out on your own OS X system, tell us how it fits into your workflow — or doesn't — in the comments.
