I believe it uses polling to keep machines in sync, and the "desktop"
functionality is currently centered around file sync'ing and client-side
function calls to the server that post data (post-funcs).
As Gabriele said, you can build anything you want on top of it, or alongside
it. We have a server proces that uses Rugby to perform certain remote
procedure calls which runs along with the IOS server.
You really have to experience it.
