CentralDesktop -- Web 2.0 for business

Unlike a lot of the free consumer offerings, CentralDesktop is designed for business and does cost money (ok, there is a free 25MB option, but it’s a limited number of users and doesn’t have a lot of the advanced features that paid plans options).  Looking at the screenshots, CentralDesktop seems to provide a lot of the same features that SharePoint provides, but is a hosted solution, so an IT department doesn’t have to worry about the server, purchasing and supporting the software, etc.  Also, CentralDesktop is available from everywhere unlike a lot of internal corporate SharePoint sites that require VPN software to access.
