What it is:
Back either in the later years of Windows 98 or the early years of Windows XP (I don't remember at this point) I had a 3D desktop environment program. Thinking back on my browsing habits back then, I probably found it linked off of SPACE.com when it was relatively new.
Your desktop became a solar system. Each planet was a essentially a folder, and then you could put stuff like buildings or spaceships on the planet that acted like icon files. The planets would rotate around a sun and you could zoom around and move from planet to planet in 3D space. It was a neat little program, but I have no idea what it was called.
What it's not:
After searching around the Internet I haven't been able to find a trace of this software, but I can tell you what it's not:
- Asia 3Desktop
- 3DNA Desktop
- Window Blinds or other Stardock software
- A screensaver, 3D solar system simulation, Google Sky, or planetarium software
If this rings a bell with anyone, I'd greatly appreciate any help in tracking it down!
