Windows only: Free application DeskHedron brings multiple virtual desktops to Windows, complete with an impressive spinning 3D animation that switches between your desktops. Using the application is simple enough—just run the executable, use the tray icon to add or remove up to 9 virtual desktops, and then switch between the desktops with a hotkey. The default setup only has two virtual desktops, so switching between them looks like flipping the desktop over—add more virtual desktops and it looks a little like Compiz Fusion's cube desktop. The software is still very basic, only works with a single monitor, and has no options to move windows from one cube to another—but unlike the similar, no longer free Yod'm 3D, this application is open source, and ready for any enterprising coder to improve it. DeskHedron is free and open source, available for Windows only. Readers looking for a more full-featured solution should check out the Vista Virtual Desktop Manager.
