Add a 3D Flare to your Windows Desktop for Free

If your looking for a change in your desktop appearance and behavior, you might want to try the freeware version of Real Desktop. It gives your ordinary desktop new life and turns it into
a next generation 3D Interactive Desktop.

The recommended system requirements are as follows:
  • Windows® XP / Vista
  • Windows® DirectX 9.0c
  • AMD ATHLON™ XP 2400+ or higher (alternatively Intel® Pentium® 4)
  • 512 MB main memory
  • DirectX able graphic card: 128 MB NVIDIA® Geforce™ 6 or better,
    ATI® Radeon™ 9700 or better
  • Screen resolution 1280 x 1024 at True Color (16 million colours)
  • Internet connection
My initial thoughts were the amount of resources it probably uses up, but I was surprised to see it didnt take that much memory compared to my Firefox browser.

Also I loved how you can configure it to look the way you want with wallpaper and backgrounds giving it your personal touch.

You can stack icons, drag them anywhere on the desktop and flip them around. The Recycle Bin becomes a three-dimensional trash can. This certainly looks like a feature that could be a part of the next release of Windows 7 perhaps.

Its a free license to use if you get the lite version.
Download it for free instantly from the developers website.
