I ran across this little gem just a few minutes ago. For those of you who have used (or still use) Linux and love the multiple desktop applet and wished it was available for Windows – wish no more.
Our friends in Redmond, Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell (Sysinternals) have been at it again and created a new applet called Desktops v1.0.
You can find it here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/cc817881.aspx
It runs much the same way as the Virtual Desktops in Linux does, and it’s small and lightweight.
Nice job gentlemen!
