Graphics, User Interfaces 360Desktop is a software that extends the Windows desktop into a panaromic desktop, with unlimited space. In addition, "it allows users to easily grab their favorite web content from across the web, and put it right on their expanded desktop". Demo of 360Desktop in action.

Well, I don't think that this will "revolutionize" the desktop (as Desktop 2.0 suggests), but it might be a nice toy for some people.

Personally, I think it takes too long to roam around your "unlimited" (haha) desktop. Always having to open that navigation bar and then sliding around seems very slowing down.

On the other hand, having mutliple desktops means that they are excluding each other somehow. On that desktop, everything belongs together, so you're free to move around your windows just as you need them. That's the only good thing that I can find about it. Still, I don't think it might be very useful.
