I have just been checking out the Ulteo full online desktop and am very impressed. The Ulteo desktop provides access to a myriad of tools which all run within the desktop. The categories include applications, development, graphics, Internet, multimedia, office, edutainment and utilities. Most of the categories link to four/five programs or more!
I particularly liked the edutainment section which includes educational language, mathematics, geography and science programs. The desktop runs a little slow but this could be down to my 'oldish' machine and/or Internet connection.
Overall, I am very excited about Ulteo. I think it may be the next best thing to sliced bread! Long may it remain free for all - and especially those in education. Although it is early days yet, it may also be my top tool for 2008.
Happy New Year! :)
Update: 10/5/2009 - Individual virtual desktop no longer available but the Ulteo Open Virtual Desktop is available for download and installation on your own server.
