    Default Component similar to OS desktop (move-able, clickable icons)

    I need such feature: User can put/move/remove icons on his virtual desktop and by clicking them generate some application events.
    I have been looking in Google for a nice library for this purpose but found nothing with exception of some docking windows libraries...
