[Oh – and Windows XP, Vista etc]

Every so often I yearn for the virtual desktop functionality that is implemented so well under Linux. Unfortunately every time I start looking for a great tool for Windows I ultimately end up disappointed.

But … I think this time around I have actually found one that will outlast the first day or two and become a must have.

Check out http://www.dexpot.de/

So far this is 100% stable, 100% sensible and offers awesome functionality, yet still is very simple to use.

There is a detailed look at the many features on the site but a couple that do it for me:

Desktop Manager and next/previous tray icons make it easy to navigate around:

Announcement of Desktop as a desktop takes focus:

And best of all, Windows 7 preview integration

And… it is FREE for private use and you get 30 days to try it out for professional use (e.g. me)

Day two and still loving it.
Found VS2010 refuses to stay on one desktop - but VS2010 deserves to be on every desktop :)
