VirtuaWin - The Virtual Desktop Manager - VirtuaWin - The Virtual Desktop Manager. Using a virtual desktop manager is a way to organize applications over several "virtual" desktops. For example if you use two virtual desktops you can put a webbrowser on desk 1 and by using a desktop manager "switch away" the webbrowser and it will seem like you have a new empty workspace (desk 2) to put another application/applications on. Virtual desktops are very common in the Unix community and once getting used to this, it is very hard to manage without it. The idea of VirtuaWin is that it should be as simple and effective as possible but still highly configurable. Features:
