Object Desktop has evolved greatly over the past two decades.
In its original OS/2 incarnation, it was designed to be a subtle, but important, upgrade to the OS.
When it migrated to Windows, it helped spark the “skinning” revolution where users used it to radically alter the look and feel of Windows.
Here in 2012, Object Desktop has again begun returning to its roots of providing important but often subtle improvements. Let’s look at the above screenshot:
- WindowFX 5 will provide, amongst many many other features, the ability to hide icon text for those who want to get rid of “screen dirt”
- Fences 2 will let users have folders displayed as Fences on the desktop
- DeskScapes continues to let users have visually more interesting wallpapers that animated, change based on time, or are enhanced visually in other ways
- Tiles takes the concept of “virtual desktops” and merges it with the better design concepts of Metro to allow users to create “pages” of tasks.
- and of course WindowBlinds allows users to change the look and feel of the Windows GUI. You can still make radical changes if you’d like (make Windows look like a Mac, for example) but most users these days use it to simply make Aero a bit more usable and personalized.
