Bumptop is a desktop replacement for Mac or PC. It gives you a 3D workspace. You can pile files, change their size, post them on the wall and more. You can put sticky notes on Bumptop or you can even put a photo on the wall. Bumptop is a very interesting software to use. It is fun to play around with, but if you don't have lots of files on your desktop it might not be as useful. If you have a touchscreen computer, Bumptop would be great for you though. I recommend you try out Bumptop to see how it works for you.

Pixelmator is a very good Photoshop alternative for Mac. It doesn't contain all the features of Photoshop, but for the price it does a lot and does it well. Pixelmator is very easy to learn, especially for anyone who has used Photoshop before. It contains many of the tools from Photoshop. One of Photoshops very useful tools, the magnetic lasso, is missing from Pixelmator. Pixelmator opens and saves as Photoshop documents so it is compatible with Photoshop. Pixelmator has a very nice interface and works well, but also has a few bugs. Another thing I would like to see in Pixelmator that Photoshop has is the history palette. Overall, Pixelmator is a very great piece of software at a very great price!
