* VirtualBox Drag and Drop Files
* VirtualBox DirectX Support (OpenGL Now Working!)
** Improved OpenOffice (Equation Editor / Speed)
* MSN/AIM/Yahoo Voice/Video/Games
** Silverlight (Moonlight 2.0 For Netflix Watch Now)
** Move Media Player (ESPN360.com ABC)
* Better Video Editor
** WINE Imp. (EPSN360/Silverlight)
** Improved wine app install (wine-doors could be better)
** PowerDVD/FFMPEG Easy BluRay Playback
* Add Link to Scripts/Themes at Gnome-Look
* Skype SMS / PulseAudio (2.1)
** MythTV Nicer Integration of WebVideos ( Something like Boxee)
