Windows Yes, the day is finally drawing closer: the day Windows XP died. October 22, 2010 will be the final and definitive day for the venerable operating system, since OEMs will no longer be able to pre-load it on netbooks after that day. I might not make myself popular around here with this, but thank god, it's about time that pile of junk is taken behind the shed.

As far as I know, the only way you can get complete system-wide spell checking is to use OS X. *nix desktops don't have it, Windows doesn't have it.

I'm pretty sure KDE has one, available to all KDE apps. Doesn't help the non-KDE apps, but if you stick to KDE apps, then you could say your KDE system has desktop-wide spellcheck.

Not sure about GNOME, though.

KDE has it ;)

Furthermore, it can detect the language you are using with just a few words!
