Windows 7: Virtual Desktops

Windows 7 x64
 
 
Virtual Desktops

I heard Windows 7 was to include Virtual Desktop support, like Linux. However, I can't find this anywhere.

Anyone else?

I had not heard that Win 7 was going to natively support virtual desktops, but here is a link to a SysInternals program for this:
Desktops

SHould work on any Windows version XP or newer but I have not tried it.

Basically, not the same kind of virtual desktop i was talking about. Instead, virtual machine (VHD).

UBUNTU First, Windows 7 "Ultimate" because I have to.
 
 
No it's not solved.

I was seriously looking for a solution and thought I found one when I saw this post.

This feature in Windows 7 doesn't look or feel anything like the virtual desktops on Ubuntu.
