    Future Mac OS X desktops could be presented in three dimensions.

    Are you ready for a 3D desktop?
    Apple is working on such a project, according to patent filings unearthed by MacRumors this week. The "multidimensional desktop" applications suggest that Apple wants to take familiar parts of the Mac OS X desktop--such as the dock--and add depth, allowing you to stack documents or folders behind application icons on the "floor" of your desktop.
    The idea of a 3D desktop is not new, but neither is it something that people are using in large numbers. When it comes to patent applications there's always a distinct chance that the technology never actually makes it into a product; still, it's always interesting to see what companies are working up in the labs.

    Yeah I read about this on engadget and the general opinion is that this will be a clutter magnet

    True but, Apple have always find ways to make a clutter into some sort of fad. I wonder how long before windows tries something similar.

    I hope never... I keep my Mac looking just like my windows desktop.... CLEAN.... I always shged a tear when I see people with folders upon folders filling their desktop... these same people probably have the messiest houses ever!

    And yes, there is too much going on for me in that image (I know it is an EXTREMELY rough concept image but still)

    My desktop and dock are pristine, but my room is a tip, lol.

    Just like a mac. Windows Exposer.

    CubeDesktop - 3D realtime virtual desktop manager and task switcher seems to have done a good job at making a 3d desktop in windows. It even includes Mac OS X Exposť-like experience.
