WorkSpaces

why is there not a idea of workspaces or workspaces-switcher in windows. I mean the little 4-window thinggy present in all forms of linux by default. it is very useful when doing many activities leading to no window-clutter. i wish windows has it by default(am sure some bloatware tool will provide it). another reason to use linux.

I haven't used it myself, but Microsoft provide a virtual desktop as a powertoy - see http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx

And so it is said, that the chocolate chip pancakes held no ill will toward men. Rather it was the slowly baked honey ham who was plotting against those bi-pedal, rational animals emboldened with intent to consume. Into the oven it shall go. For whom will the cake's praise be directed but towards their saviors, all seven of them sitting on stools and sipping cider, weaving culinary conspiracies since dawn.

Thanks Mike,
I did try out the MS Desktop Power Toy. But unfortunately it dosent provide the functionality I am looking for. I want four differebt work spaces. If a window is open in workspace A i should not be able to see it workspace B. This is not possible in MS's tool. I find the MS's tool similar to switching between windows (like using Alt+Tab).
