This has been suggested for many years now.  Since PB 1.   Imagine if the Windows desktop were a PB.  That would be so cool.

There have been products that reuse the Desktop.  One in particular is Fences.  They have a free version available.  I use it on my XP laptop (won't try it on Windows 7). 

Fences is a simple yet very useful organizing UI for the desktop.  As I look at it I think how much PB would be in this regard.   Oh well.

P.S.  The above was not spam or subtle sales.  I did notice that on Windows 7 there are "gadgets" available that can be put on the desktop.  Don't know if a Java based app could be put there, but gadgets could be an avenue.  Gadgets overview and user experience guidelines.
