OpenGL 3D desktop environment

True3DShell is a 3D desktop environment with functionality similar to KDE or GNOME. Information is organized in "bubbles" connected by "pipes". A bubble can be the equivalent of a folder in a computer, a shared folder in a network, or an execution space for a 3D program. <>"Bubbles" generated by different computers are connected "pipes" acting as network connections, providing network transparency. Users and automated avatars interact in the same 3D universe, browsing or running 3D programs locally or remotely without regard to physical location.
