360 Desktop (cool)

360 Desktop is a virtual desktop application that creates a "panoramic workspace" extending across multiple screens. It behaves as a scrollable desktop where you could travel from one side and into the other. It also introduces the ability to embed widgets on the new desktop that clip content off the web such as RSS feeds and videos.
Imagine a desktop environment that is spread across multiple screens consisting of a single, panoramic wallpaper image, and where you can scroll smoothly across the new desktop and place both icons and applications anywhere you like.

360 Desktop tries to deliver exactly this with some success. It provides a never-ending desktop that scrolls smoothly and creates the feeling of an expansive workspace with a lot of space for your windows, apps, and icons. However, the pre-release beta tested here still has some major kinks that need to be ironed out, high on the list of which is it’s support for embedded internet widgets that still feels rudimentary and left me wishing that I could simply switch it off.
