360Desktop is a Windows application that transforms your desktop into a panoramic workspace. They are calling it Desktop 2.0, a convergence of web and desktop. The application also comes with a widget loader where you can install your favorite widgets by placing in the embed code in the add widget window.
This is a pretty neat application which will help you organize your desktop in an entirely unique way. Just download the rather small application (5.93 MB), install and run. You can select from a variety of panoramic images to display in your 360Desktop. The application is unobtrusive. It will not replace your current wallpaper or desktop setting. You can close it anytime you want if you wish to revert to your normal desktop.
When I tested the application, I noticed that it will not let you to browse the other part of the panoramic image as long as you have a maximized window present in your desktop. It’s like a locking mechanism for the application so that it will not move the desktop around when you are working on something important. Also remember to minimize your windows before closing 360Desktop or you will be left with a cluttered desktop with off centered windows. Aside from that, it’s a cool app to have around in your Windows machine.
