The desktop manager and environment is called Workbench on Amiga computers. Amiga have always had a concept called screens which might be
difficult to understand people who are used to other computing platforms. Any program can open a custom screen for itself. Or multiple programs
can share a public screen. Every screen can have different resolution and colour depth (even different scan rates back in era when we all were
still using CRT monitors). These screens are a little bit similar but also a little bit different than virtual desktops or spaces on other
platforms. It's possible to run Workbench on one screen only. So I decided to start making my own desktop manager which could be run on any
public screen. Only limitation is amount of free memory. Originally it was called Yet Another Desk but I decided to rename it to Hyper Bench.
The word Bench comes from Workbench and the word Hyper is honour to the company, developing AmigaOS further currently, called Hyperion Entertainment.
