Mac OS X and Virtual Desktop Functionality?
Approved/Edited by arn on Tuesday November 04, 2003 02:11 PM
from the rumors dept.

Appleinsider claims that Apple will be building in Virtual Desktop support into Mac OS X by 2004.

Appleinsider points to an Exposé hack that shrinks all windows into a small window as evidence of ongoing work on this feature.

"Virtual Desktops" is a feature that was popularized in Unix windows managers, allowing users to invoke any number of virtual screens for improved window management. CodeTek currently offers a trialware application called VirtualDesktop which implements this functionality on Mac OS X.

Another curious Mac OS X Exposé hack is described here -- the Exposé "blob".

My Comments: Kind of kewl.. I have always liked Virtual Desktops.
QUOTE Thanks
