Okay guys: this is going to be my little software plug for Desktop Manager... I first started using Codetek's Virtual Desktop program about a year ago when I started a CSCI class and saw that Linux natively supported virtual desktops. It made me want my own. I used just one extra desktop for the longest time, not wanting to pay for the full version of the program. Then, about September, I stumbled upon Desktop Manager. At that time, it did what I wanted and was free, so I continued using it and following the very rare updates. Now, Desktop Manager is on it's way to becoming an amazing little application. The wow factor really comes from being able to use the different OS X Quartz Extreme transitions when switching between desktops: Desktop Manager is also lightweight, can use Codetek's Virtual Desktop pager skins, and FREE! Did I mention that it's FREE? ps- I am in no way affiliated with the program or the program's designer... just very very excited about it.
