Hmm... Well, as much as I love PowerPro, I also love Virtual Desktop programs but I don't really like PP's virtual desktop support as there is no visual representation (also known as a Pager in *nix land...) which is why i'm also not into VirtuaWin
. Below are the ones I have tested...Wiki page about Virtual Desktopshttp://en.wikipedia....wiki/Virtual_desktop
Informative and has links to some shareware VD apps.XDesk's Virtual Desktop Info pagehttp://www.xdesksoftware.com/vdesk.html
How nice of them to explain the topic as well as provide links to their competitors.XDesk
itself looks nice, and comes with an applauncher as well.JS Pager
The one I use. Stable, fast, configurable, and (unlike many skinnables) easily
LOTS of options. Almost too many (like my other favorite...
) but looking very promising. Even works across multiple monitors. Cool.Semik's Desktop

Stable, small and simple.Desktop Manager
Actually a Shell/Launcher/VirtualDesktop thingamabob that I found a bit confusing, but someone may like it...Dexpot
Looks nice and full-featured while remaining small and easily configured.Virtual Dimension

Yet another... This one is nice in that it has visuals, but they are simply mini-icons in the pager windows rather than miniature representations of the windows on each desktop (the most common...) and you can switch to any window on any desk by hitting the icon.
MS has a Virtual Desktop Powertoy
. Most alternative shells like Litestep, BlackBox 4 Windows, Geoshell, etc. have a Virtual Desktop plugin/module. PowerPro can manage quite a few desktops and access them with buttons, hotkeys, scripts, etc. There's a lot more to say, just Google for "virtual desktop" "virtual window", you get the idea.
