Yod’m 3D – 3D Cube Desktop Manager
Yesterday, as I was surfing the web, I stumbled upon this interesting piece of software. Yod’m 3D (freeware) now succeeded by DeskSpace (trialware) is a desktop manager that allows you to manage 4 desktops within a simple system tray application with some extra eye candy! Talk about desktop switching tansitions! Yod’m 3D allows you to do this with a rotating 3D cube effect, which is similar to the special effects experienced when using the OpenGL-accelerated Beryl or Compiz under Linux.
You would probably only be able to get this similar effect under Windows by paying for Stardock.com’s WindowFX software. However, Yod’m 3D is completely free and can run under Windows 2000, XP or Vista. I am running it under Windows XP Professional SP3 with no problems whatsoever! According to the Task Manager, Yod’m 3D only utilizes about 40MB of RAM and rarely deviates from this point even during desktop transitioning.
If you have been looking for this 3D cube effect within a desktop manager, try Yod’m 3D first. Activate hardware processing to offload some of the special effects onto your dedicated graphics card and customize away!
