It’s interesting to consider how Desktop.com would perform under today’s technology and bandwidth…I wasn’t terribly impressed with it back then. Should they resurrect it, it could get good help from the community through mashups as well if they open up their API. It would make for an interesting ASP model.
However, it seems many people have built many great applications (such as Writely) that Desktop.com should have…they should consider acquiring such companies if they want to attempt a comeback and get an instant user base that they can provide other “desktop apps” to.
