ThreeDFM is a 3D file manager that uses OpenGL. Currently, only file system browsing is implemented. The main reason for this project is that using a 2D file manager is slow. More information about files can be conveyed in 3 dimensions. Not only will you be able to see the file's properties, but you will quickly be able to see a particular file's relationship to the others in the surrounding directories. A simple example of this is the file's size, as this can be shown by the size or colour of its representation. It will also be possible to view the contents of multiple directories simultaneously as they stretch off into the distance.
