Read also this exciting news from MIT (03/23/10): "A new approach to desalination being developed by researchers at MIT and in Korea could lead to small, portable units that could be powered by solar cells or batteries and could deliver enough fresh water to supply the needs of a family or small village. As an added bonus, the system would also remove many contaminants, viruses and bacteria at the same time." The story (http://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2010/desalination-0323.html) is attracting enthusiastic comments from people who foresee using the system on sailboats, on the farm, and during catastrophic events.
