360 Gui

  1. Mar 18, 2006 #1
    Hello there,

    I remember seeing a video demonstration a few years ago of this very strange type of GUI for that particular operating system. On the display monitor, there would be windows like usual, but the view could be rotated 360 degrees around to view other windows. If I remember correctly, all of the windows were arranged around this view making a sphere and depending on where you placed the window, you'd have to rotate the display to view it. Does anyone know what program I'm talking about? It's really been bugging me.

    Much of those features have been available for the MAC OS for a while, just to give credit where credit is due. Looking good though Linux3D, which, being produced by Novell, i assume is a new Suse distro. Looking forward to it.
