Apple Granted Patent On Cover Flow-Like 3D Desktop

Hasn't the whole 3D desktop thing been done a bunch of times already? Besides, I thought the reason no one used a 3D desktop is because they sucked. Who knows, maybe Apple's version will be better than all the past attempts.

According to the patent's detailed description, a user can tilt the computer to present the three-dimensional desktop "with a raised view level, such that desktop items behind the browsable parade are revealed." This action not only allows for a more immersive interactive experience, but increases viewable desktop space and aids in navigating the UI.
