Disctop Pro

disctoppro.jpg Disctop Pro is something that TUAW came across and is definitely an interesting little utility. It actually works in two parts. One is the preference panel that blends the CD/DVD into the background of your desktop so you know there’s something there. The other is the daemon that actually watches the optical drive for changes.
Overall, this doesn’t really increase functionality any, but it does make life just a little bit easier. Especially when the optical drive is pretty quiet on Macs in general. Freeware for MacOSX.
