I know this program is old but I was wondering if anybody remembers this world....at one point I had it installed in my PC but since then I have reformated and lost it....it used to be a pretty cool world you could spin around on your desktop and put icons and all kinds of links on it....the website doesn't exist anymore...but I was just wondering if anybody knew what happened to it....

Why not use SphereXP? It does more or less the same job!

UBUBU became Linkscape Software in 2001. With the tech crash, the company took the software private (no more public downloads), but continued to develop it until 2003, when the company was forced to shutter because there was still so little investment in R&D. The latest software is much more sophisticated than the first release. Linkscapes became a browser-enabled 3d navigation and folder management application with an embedded desktop, 3D nesting, streaming video, browser skins, server controls, and lots of other stuff. SphereX is cool but very different – it’s still about windows whereas the point of Linkscapes was to harness color, size, proximity, and shape cues to provide richer meaning (the full spectrum of spatial cognition). Here’s a screenshot example of one component of the UI. I can dig up more screen shots and even software/code if you are interested. It works for Windows 2000 and XP.

To Tech*Wiz: I'd be happy to send you what I have. This version has several dozen nested Linkscapes though (lots of graphics), so it's pretty big - 78MB. If you want it, how would you like me to get it to you? One thought - I could set up a temp account on Yahoo and send you the pw.

To TituFama re. RAM.

By today's standards, nothing. 25-35MB roughly. Speed was core to development, which focused on super-low poly objects.
