NjDesktop is one of my personal projects. The first version was written for a client who was a fan of the web desktop. The project looked nice in it and its features did fit nicely in a desktop environment. However, the first version was put together in a hurry and later features had always shown that they were an afterthought. NjDesktop 2 is here to fix that.
