This could be useful to create multiple virtual desktops a functionality only found in Unix natively.

There is a power toy for XP that can do that too I guess but it's only available for XP pro.

The CreateDesktop() API function in Windows creates multiples desktops in Windows natively.

  • PowerToys are for Windows XP only.
  • PowerToys only work with U.S. English regional settings.
  • If you installed PowerToys prior to April 23, 2002, you must uninstall your old PowerToys before installing the versions available here.

I remember that it was XP Pro to begin with. I went back and read the part you quoted after I made that post. I didn't realize that it had changed.
