In one sense, computers have always provided a gateway to another digital world. This download heightens that illusion, transforming the desktop wallpaper into a window overlooking a constantly shifting mountainous environment. The time of day changes from dawn to dusk. Storms with rain, thunder, and lightning are replaced by sun and rainbows.
Soothing sounds of nature, from birdsong to rain falling, accompany the animations. The interface provides immediate access to settings that can be changed on the fly. Our only complaint was a trial version that disabled the shifts in the time of day, and displayed a large nag screen every minute. On the whole, this software makes a pleasing, if sometimes distracting, addition to the desktop.
