Not sure how long this has been out, but I just came across a helpful tool. Those of you who use Ubuntu or most other Linux versions are familiar with multiple desktops. I was using the sysinternals suite to troubleshoot a file problem i was having, and I came across Desktops application that allows you to do this. It is ridiculously easy to use and you can set it to load on startup. You can also easily switch between screens with shortcut keys just like Linux.   It also has some limitations, such as you can’t close windows once they are created (need to logoff to close).  For more info or to download you can visit here or just get it as part of the sysinternals suite which contains great tools for troubleshooting and maintenance.
