MELBOURNE — Is it really correct to even call it a "desktop" anymore? Once, it might have been the window into the computer sitting there on your desk; now, it is a portal to worlds of information and interconnections of almost every kind. And there's a good chance that it has nothing to do with your PC.

To take a closer look at where it's all heading, we conducted a live panel for ZDNet Australia on 23 November 2011, on the floor of a Microsoft conference entitled "The Big Picture".

Special guests on this Melbourne live panel were:

  • David Braue, journalist
  • Greg Stone, CTO, Microsoft
  • Harry McKenzie, CIO, Pickles Auctions
  • Matt Tett, managing director, Enex TestLab
  • Hosted by Brian Haverty, editorial director, ZDNet Australia

Let us know your thoughts and questions on the future of the desktop in the Talkback section below, or send them directly to The Desktop of Tomorrow.

The next live panel discussion, entitled "Bringing the Cloud Down to Earth", will be held on 1 December 2011 in Sydney. More details can be found here.
