This kind of stuff has been out for a while, both in third party apps and as XP 
power toys, iirc.  The issue I had with all the apps I tried was that my 
taskbar button order was not remembered when switching among the desktops.  :(
This reminds me.  The Windows taskbar has existed since Windows 95.  The GUI 
introduced with Windows was real big on the drag-and-drop that you can do.  
Yet, here we are in 2008, and I still cannot drag a taskbar button over to a 
different spot in the taskbar!  I think that mswish@xxxxxxxxxxxxx blocked me on

mac users, you know this app as "spaces".  Nice to finally have it on Windows.

        The guys at Sysinternals Microsoft have released Yet another app.  This 
one is called Desktops.
        Desktops allows you to organize your applications on up to four virtual 
desktops. Read email on one, browse the web on the second, and do work in your 
productivity software on the third, without the clutter of the windows you're 
not using. After you configure hotkeys for switching desktops, you can create 
and switch desktops either by clicking on the tray icon to open a desktop 
preview and switching window, or by using the hotkeys. 
        Get it at: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/cc817881.aspx
