It's useless for endusers

A desktop is one of the most personal "space" in computing. Who on earth would put a desktop full of ads on to there PC?

The only thing I see is going for it is to implement it at internet cafes where ads can be displayed on the computer. But then again, once the user is using an application, the desktop will not be in sight.

This software absolutely useless when it comes to arranging application windows on the desktop that it provides. This 360Desktop is not designed with end user usability in mind.
