Real Desktop Review

Tina de Pierre
A 3D desktop overhaul on Windows
A review of Real Desktop by Tina de Pierre

Real Desktop is a 3D desktop environment which really adds a nice touch of eye candy to your overall PC experience. It is reminiscent of BumpTop, the application that made waves before Google bought it and shut it down. This might be viewed as a suitable replacement to that now-gone 3D desktop application.

Real Desktop essentially adds a layer on top of your current layout. Doing so unfortunately comes at a cost, and if you're not running graphics hardware up to the task, you might want to think twice before installing this application. On the other hand, if you've got some RAM and graphics power to space, by all means give this a try.

The web site of this publisher offers many different layouts and skins on their web site and custom icons are also available as packs. Move on from basic design elements like any desktop might have, and you'll also be pleased to learn that Real Desktop offers some decorations and other treats from their online community.

Overall, this program might not yet be as good as BumpTop was and has not yet surpassed expectations by any means. It is very pretty though.

Installation note: Real Desktop is wrapped with Somoto adware. You should be very careful during installation, ensuring you decline or "Skip" any additional offers while installing. Careless installation may result in your homepage and search engine settings being changed!
