3D Windows 1.0
Bloom Software’s 3D Windows 1.0 by Robert Rose is a system extension that is supposed to give you, as the name implies, 3D looking windows. Now, I am a sucker for frivolous fluff like this, so I was eager to download and try it.
The first thing I noticed is that 3D Windows adds a gray background to open windows. This does not work or look well with some programs, such as DOCMaker (which we use to create My Mac). What happens is that any picture retains the white border, while the rest of the window is gray. Not very attractive.
As with any system extension, you do take the chance of a conflict. And after having 3D Windows loaded for only a few short hours, I had three system conflicts. (Running system 7.5.3) I have yet to determine which extension was responsible, but the problem did go away when I trashed 3D Windows 1.0. So I tend to think the problem is there.
Overall, I would not recommend downloading this extension. The 3D effect is very mild, nothing to write home about. If you do wish to try it for yourself, you can reach Robert Rose at firstname.lastname@example.org
