Windows 7: 3D Virtual Desktop

01 Nov 2009   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

I think Deskspace is nice, most certainly an overly extravagant way to change your desktop wall paper since your desktop icons never change from desktop to desktop. The 360Desktop is nice too, but it looks like it could get to be a bit of a chore looking for 1 shortcut out of the 1000's you can place on it.

I was wondering if anyone here knew of a software that worked in a combination of both. Keeping your Icons in/on one desktop and still be able to rotate to a new clean desktop with an "identifying" background image.

I figure this way you could organize each of your projects and icons onto different desktops. Giving the true appearance of having multiple desktops.

Oh and yes, one more thing to add. I like running DreamScene type movies as my desktop, I would like to have different ones running on each of the individual backgrounds. Currently DeskSpace software only allows different pics.

W7 RTM Ultimate x64

Is there a way to make it display each Desktop next to each other or a program that does its virtual windows in this fashion? The cubes a tad confusing when dragging a window.

Windows 7 Enterprise

This looks very similar to COMPIZ desktop effects (used to be part of the Beryl 3-D build) on Linux running Windows 7 under vmware workstation .

KDE 4 on Linux gives great 3D effects -- I can't take a screen dump because it's animated but I also like the "Wobbly Windows" effect -- also you can have a huge number of Virtual Desktops.

Using a Linux Desktop with 3D effects makes any AERO theme look positively tame (and the Linux stuff uses far less resources).
Completely agree.
I use Ubuntu (Gnome) on my laptop just for the fancy compiz stuff it does.
Would be neat to get it ported to windows, and maintain its pricetag (free!!)

However, here at work with win7 enterprise environments, 6 desktops in a cube is a bit much for most people... Just need simple virtual desktops.

Windows 7

Well my dad was searching the web and found another fast applied program thats tiny and gives the 3d cube.. Yodm3d its called and here a pic i took on it.

It works perfect with win7 x64 wich i could not get deskspace to do.. so if u got probs like i had with deskspace then try this prog instead..

Best Virtual Desktop App?
Hey all. I run Ubuntu on my other computer for work purposes and the only feature I really enjoy is the virtual workspaces which I can easily manage and switch between. Do any of you know a really well implemented app for W7 that will do this? Thanks!
