Virtual Desktops

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

Anyone else?

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

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.
