VERY interesting proof of concept on the desktop metaphor. Download the huge movie and watch the demo.

I say- if you're going to start with the desktop metaphor, go all the way with it like the above does. If you think that's a bad metaphor to start out with in the first place (I've been known to express my opinion on properly choosing metaphors), that's fine too. I guess you could argue either way, still, a very cool demo and fun to watch.
My favorite slashdot quotes:
