Ambient is the MorphOS native desktop. It handles program icons, directory navigation, program launching, file handling and everything you need for managing your system.

The project Ambient started in december 2001 when the new PowerPC platform Pegasos came with its own operating system MorphOS. Most of Pegasos users were amigists and they were used to Amiga Workbench. Hence there was an effort to develop a graphical user interface that would be similar to that on Amiga. Step by step Ambient became more complex and better.

On 22nd January 2005, Ambient was provided as an open source software by its previous author David Gerber.

The sources are available at SourceForge and Ambient is developed by following people:
