If you find your desktop is simply too small to handle everything you need to do on it then why not multiply it by four?
Deskwin gives you up to four virtual desktops so you can work with several programs at once without worrying about space. Scrolling through the desktops is simple - just click on one of the four panels of the main Deskwin interface and you can change it's characteristics by changing its size, location and screen colour. It may sound like a strange concept and at first it is because you'll constantly forget what you've got open in each Window and have to go back to them to remember what the hell you're using. However, once you get used to it, it's actually quite a handy way of flicking between different working environment - one for play, one for work and one for perhaps another user or task. The big problem however is that because the program creates 4 virtual desktops, it inevitably requires quite a bit of RAM to work. Therefore, you may find that your system operates much more slowly than you expect and it can be a bit slow ans painful skipping between each Window.
Nevertheless, Deskwin is an excellent option for those people working in multiple environments who simply can't affords to mix up their desktops.
