    Was browsing Web 2.0 (see, what is Web 2.0)world... found a cool service called GOOWY via tWiT // Jake's Tech-Log...

    GOOWY
    is a new free Web 2.0 application, offers an abundance of desktop tools accessable from almost any computer including email, contact book, calendar, games, and widgets. Each account is assigned a virtual online desktop (Interface = Flash/AJAX) with a 2GB @goowy.com email address, POP mail client, RSS reader, and many fun, time-consuming Flash games.
    An integrated IM client (similar to Meebo) and free file storage are in the website’s near future.

    It can also import all your Mails/Address ooks from all popolar services.

    Version 2 of Goowy is a free Web 2.0 application available to the public.

    My QucikReview: ...definately worth a try... i liked its desktop like feel/enviroment... as compared to other similar stuff like Microsoft Live etc... Goowy looks promosing and gives a feel and touch of a desktop ;) ... but still, the mail import system from Yahoo! / Gmail doesn't seem working... :( ... Web 2.0/AJAX is the thing!!!

    Yeah, I also tried it... Got the link when I was searching for AJAX.. that site goes to Web 2.0 and GOOWY as one of the example.

    Idea is very good... but interface is bit heavy for me.

    It's good, but as aadipa said the interface is quite heavy.

    Hey,

    Web 2.0 and AJAX is the next in thing and probably the future. I am personally researching the subject.

    Check out a Web 2.0 n AJAX (without X) free file hosting website
