It's kinda hard to get excited about something you can't see. A bigger image would be nice.

Sort of ... looks like ... a opera-ish tabbing for windows. But i am squinting at the picture

Yeah...more like a sneaky peak. Tease!

If it were bigger it wouldn't be a peek now would it? ....

Indeed it does. Some sort of explorer alternative perhaps?

This, along with WindowsFX... is Stardock moving more in to the realm of utilities vs customization/skinning or simply expanding?

Something on the right looks like the overview pane in PowerPoint...

You know it's just plain evil to tease us with these itty bitty pictures.

Itty Bitty?? I need a magnifying glass to see it. Don't do that! You make us crazy!

Perhaps a Stardock or ObjectDesktop OS?

Looks to me like a big fat taskbar with window previews in it. Notice the lack of taskbar buttons? I could be talking out of my butt of course........

If it IS a big fat taskbar thingy, I wouldn't like it, I don't like anything on my desktop like that.

Also, what is that big "E" at the top left of the desktop? Is that the icon for the new app? Curioser and curioser................

The "E" is Elemental: War Of Magic i think.

I know. FrogBoy shrunk WindowBlinds down to fit his phone. Maybe.

It's an app which organizes all currently opened windows in color coded thumbs whose sizes can be adjusted in a sidebar to make the desktop uncluttered and organized for work. The thumbs probably automatically shrink as their number increases, and perhaps can be grouped by app. An additional taskbar which can be docked (in ss) or floating, probably.

This guess (if correct) wins me a no all expense paid trip to clean the server room at SD.
