OnLive Desktop Now Live, Streams Windows 7 to iPad

OnLive Desktop, a service you may have heard about earlier this week that streams a full-blown copy of Windows to your iPad, is now available to download through iTunes. OnLive uses the company’s classified compression algorithm to render movies, games, and more over the internet with minimal lag.

The Desktop service allows iPad users to instantly “boot” into a Windows 7 cloud desktop and work with the full Office Suite—perfect for stiffs in suits who need to use Excel on the go, and students who don’t have access to a PC.

Free accounts are limited to 2GB of storage, but that should be more than enough to baffle your friends.
