Central Desktop Offers Wikis Without the Wiki "Look around the Central Desktop Web site and you'll never see the "W" word. In this case, "W" stands for "wiki," and you won't find it anywhere, even though Central Desktop is built on a wiki engine and provides exactly the kind of easy collaboration features that wikis are known for.
That's because the team behind Central Desktop believes that "wiki" — while the buzzword of the moment for the technorati — is still a foreign concept for most people. The word makes wikis sound foreign and difficult to those who haven't tried them. Besides that, wiki markup language can be too difficult for non-techies. The idea behind Central Desktop is to improve on the wiki foundation and give people an online collaboration tool that simply works, no special training required."
