Check it out if you're looking for a nice multiple desktop solution for Windows. It's free under the Public GNU license, too. Also, there is plugin support as well as some sample code for any programmers out there.
Funny thing is that back in the day WinNT had something like this with powertoys, I always wondered why Microsoft never brought many of these features to windows or at least still allowed for the never OS's to have them as downloadable features again...
