Software Product Description

VirtuaWIn is a virtual desktop manager to organize applications over several "virtual" desktops.

For example if you use two virtual desktops you can put a Web browser on desk 1 and by using a desktop manager "switch away" the Web browser and it will seem like you have a new empty workspace (desk 2) to put another application/applications on.

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I regret ignoring virtual desktop managers in the past. I always assumed that on machines with older hardware that turning your 1 desktop into as many as you'd like, and trying to switch between them all with a bunch of apps running at the same time was out of the question. I was happily proven wrong. I'm running an 866 Mhz processor, 512 MB RAM, Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 3, and I'm now using 4 virtual desktops, with 15 or so apps running, including my rather memory heavy anti-virus, anti-spyware, WMP, LimeWire and switching between all 4 desktops takes me about 2 or 3 seconds.

I've taken a good look at most of the other VWMs and this seems like the smallest, most convienent one of them all. After some settings changes, I can scroll through all 4 continously by middle clicking the mouse botton on the icon in the system tray.

Summary: People on old machines don't avoid these because you think your system can't handle it, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Deserves a 10, what a great addition to lame Windows.
