When I switched from eeeXubuntu to Windows XP on my ASUS Eee 701, one of the features I sorely missed was multiple desktops. With the Eee PC 701’s cramped screen, managing multiple programs can be such a pain without a second (or even third) virtual desktop to shuffle the currently-unused applications to. Sure, I tried various virtual desktop programs for XP, even the Microsoft Powertoy, but none were as elegant as the ones on Linux. Or I probably wasn’t patient enough to figure those apps out.
Anyway, I tried to work without virtual desktops for quite some time now, until I decided to give the dated Yodm 3d virtual desktop a chance. And boy was I surprised:
It’s actually relatively low on memory usage, and I find it more intuitive than the other programs I tested before. Not exactly the same features found on Linux, but I’m actually happy with this. I never tried installing Compiz-Fusion on my eeeXubuntu installation (although I must say I was quite impressed), but with Yodm 3d I actually have a close approximation of what it can do.
