Object Desktop 2010 represents the largest update to the suite since its initial launch in December 1999. Object Desktop 2010 is $49.99 (www.objectdesktop.com).
"Windows 7 provided us with a great opportunity to build on the features and power of Microsoft's new OS," said Brad Wardell, President & CEO of Stardock. "Object Desktop 2010 lets us take advantage of everything from the desktop compositor in Windows 7 to the visual performance to many of the new shell APIs."
