Note: Virtual Desktop is no longer under development and the developer provides no support for it.Virtual Desktop is the answer to a growing problem among users of modern Mac computers, who have plenty of RAM to run programs in, but donÕt have the "screen real estate" to handle large numbers of windows productively. This problem is especially acute for people using PowerBook computers, because of their small screen size.
Virtual Desktop, the premier virtual desktop manager for the Mac, is an adaptation of the kind of virtual window manager found on many X Window System workstations. Having allocated some memory for off-screen buffers, they let the userÕs screen view move between several "rooms" where various programs can put their windows. Usually, these rooms are non-overlapping and arranged in a rigid grid pattern. A small-scale window shows the user where all the windows are, in a stylized form.
