Remote Desktop

In a narrow defintiion, this is not a promising category - security, cross-platform compatibility, hassle factor, etc. But classic 'dependency enriched' remote desktop is still a possibility nonetheless.

What's the definition ? Maybe a new definition needed ?

In a wider sense, there may be a new day dawning for integrated multi-machine 'grid desktop' or 'semantic desktop'.


Virtual Network Computing


Collaborative Real-Time Editor

This is an important category, may not belong in Remote Desktop, but concept is very similar.

Semantic Desktop

How 'semantic' is it ? Not very a this point, but the idea seems to have potential.

Semantic Desktop is a collective term for ideas related to changing a computer's user interface and data handling capabilities so that data is more easily shared between different applications or tasks and so that data that once could not be automatically processed by a computer could be. It also encompasses some ideas about being able to automatically share information between different people.

This concept is very much related to the Semantic Web but is distinct insofar as its main concern is the personal use of information.

Zeitgeist is a software service which logs the users's activities and events, anywhere from files opened to websites visited and conversations. It makes this information readily available for other applications to use in the form of timelines and statistics.

It is able to establish relationships between items based on similarity and usage patterns by applying data association algorithms such as "Winepi" and "Apriori".

GNOME Activity Journal is a semantic desktop browser-like application for the GNOME desktop environment.

Instead of providing direct access to the hierarchical file system like most file managers, GNOME Activity Journal uses the Zeitgeist framework to classify files according to metadata. This includes time and date of previous accesses, location of use (using GPS positioning), file type, tagging and more.

In addition to local files, GNOME Activity Journal also organizes web browsing history, email and other data sources.
