I heard about Web 2.0 but Desktop 2.0?. As I know Web 2.0 is about new web technology. Same idea but its on a computer desktop. A kind of software that lets us see a our Windows Desktop in whole new way by scrolling it in a circular motion. 360 Desktop is the name and can give users virtually unlimited amount of desktop space. With 360 Desktop, you will have an instant 50 inch wide screen monitor, virtual monitor I mean.
The software is still in Beta testing so no official download available yet. User who wanted to download it have to sign up to become a Beta tester. You can sign up. Currently the software only work with Windows XP and Vista.
