Just kidding. A very cool fact though @phillryu!
I’ll add the original idea submitted was ‘it’s raining on your desktop’ in its entirety. Suggested the contestant flesh it out to mirror weather conditions as desktop wallpaper because I was so desperate for decent ideas He did a great job further fleshing the idea out through the contest.
I remember this contest! It was all the buzz on the MacNN forums back in the day. So many cool Mac apps back then - Shapeshifter, Disco, Delicious Library, etc… was a fun time to be a Mac user.
Someone on twitter called Clear ‘the last delicious generation app’. Definitely more accurate than ‘a pioneering flat design app’!
