Glad you find it of use to you.

One of the more typical ways I use it is with VirtualBox VMs. I'll open up a VM in Desktop 2 and maximize the VM window to fill the entire screen. I may also open a second VM in Desktop 3 and similarly maximize it. Then I can switch back and forth between Desktops 1, 2 and 3, and it's almost like having a KVM switch with three separate computers. It's really handy that way.
