Desktop Sidebar

A collegue showed me this: a forthcoming standard feature from Longhorn.



The aim of Desktop Sidebar is provide you with instant access to some of your most important daily information.

Desktop Sidebar is integrated with Microsoft Outlook so you don't have to transfer their data to a new application. While using this application, you won't have to switch to Microsoft Outlook in order to check their schedule or tasks. Desktop Sidebar is docked to the edge of the screen and it is always visible, so to check your schedule, one look at Sidebar is enough!

Desktop Sidebar displays e-mails, appointments, task, notes, Messenger contacts, stock quotes, weather forecasts and constantly updated news from blogs, RSS newsfeeds and web pages. Finally, 'Information at your fingertips'.

I'd say that Longhorn is catching up with the tools I have on my Linux/KDE desktop, only in reality its a moving target. KDE (and Gnome, just to be fair) have the lead and they are unlikely to loose it.

Let's give up developing TWiki and wait for MS wink
