Mactive Desktop April 19, 2007

Posted by jbwan in Technology, TSSG.

Okay, we’ve all heard the term active desktop for many years. Ever since IE4 came onto the scene as far as I recall. You know, it’s the background wallpaper that’s interactive in some way whether it’s a webpage or some other object. Well rumour has it that Apple are currently developing something similar for OSX. Big swing you might say until that is, you read on: This version of an active desktop environment will actually help to reduce the video RAM and system RAM requirements by the usage of clever recipes for constructing the desktop images. So not only will this new feature add yet more sparkle and allure to your Mac, it’s also good for it. Trust Apple to make the fancy stuff, resource friendly. 🙂 source: AppleInsider

I’ll believe that when I see it. ActiveDesktop was a pig for resources. I hope Apple can do it though.
