The developers behind Bigboard and Gnome's 'online desktop' initiative think it's time our desktops started catching up. Read on to find an interview with Colin Walters, more information about Bigboard, the online desktop and the obligatory screencast showing it off!"

Hope all of this can be turned off. Bigboard is the most hideous thing I have ever seen and I have absolutely no use for an "online" desktop. Can't even begin to name the usability issues with BigBoard. This entire online desktop thing seems to me to be a solution in search of a problem.
