Graphics, User Interfaces We've all seen the early demos of something called "BumpTop", a sort of 3D desktop where files are presented as 3D objects with physical properties. Recently, the project moved from concept to product with the release of BumpTop 1.0. The big question now is: are we dealing with the next big thing in desktop computing, or just a gimmick?

I think the 3D desktop is kind of cheesy and at times it can get cluttered because of the overlapping text, but they do have some very innovative ways for organizing your desktop....perhaps they should license the methodologies to real OS makers (or have them just steal the ideas).
