AjaxWindows! - A demonstration of what AJAX can do.
I stumbled across a very cool demonstration of the future of web applications. It's called ajaxWindows, and is a windows clone that you use in your browser. It has the layout that a windows user would be accustomed to, complete with recycling bin, my computer etc. It can sync the contents with your local computer, and store files in your gmail account! It uses ajaxWrite for writing office documents, and has a couple of other widgets and gadgets included. If you like that, it's not the only online operating system out there, have a look at this roundup of some more. With Silverlight, an ever expanding .Net framework, and all other technologies moving forward, the future is looking exciting.
