Future Desktop Now With Source Code


[On10]If you're like me, you probably got a little giddy when you saw the interfaces in the Productivity Future Vision video developed by Microsoft's Envisioning team. And if you happened to catch my behind the scenes chat about that video, you'll know that much of what was shown in the video (software as opposed to hardware) is possible right now with existing Microsoft products.
Let the games begin. Orkpad.com has taken a first shot at this kind of interface in Silverlight, and while it doesn't do a whole lot yet, I really like what I see. The UI is built using Ork's nRoute framework, and the source code for this "Future Desktop" is right here if you'd like to help carry it forward.
