    I use 6 virtual desktops when i bother to use a gui.

    It's great I think, one of the main things that windows is missing. and the reason why my windows taskbar is always 2/3 rows high

    So your not on XP then? This is no longer a issue with xp pro or home. How they solved it is too difficult to describe in words for me, you have to see it.

    oh you mean with the grouping thing? where all the internet explorer windows are grouped into one taskbar icon? yeh, ive seen that.

    but i often still need 2/3 rows because i often have lots of unique instances of apps running

    For people stuck with a windows box, litestep is pretty good for mimicking the linux gui. Even has 4 VDs. It replaces the explorer.exe with a different shell and is very customizable. Just no where near as stable as linux (it is still windows, after all )
    Check out a screenshot here: http://www.lsthemes.com/zoom.php?area=1&id=235

    P.S. I used to run it under Win98 (before I even knew what linux really was), so I'm not sure if it's compatible with XP or not.

    I mostly use one, but every once in a while, I bust out the second one for the ultra-super-sneaky-type-things (like Chirstmas shopping).
