Looking for a better desktop look!

I hope this thread is not too redundant. I have been searching for a desktop cube that works good, looks good, and has very little bugs. If anybody knows of a good one please let me know. Thank you in advance.

Are you looking for 3d cube type stuff? like this: 3D Virtual Desktop

are you looking for freeware?

Edit: if so, good luck. I have looked, and have not found a free-ware 3d desktop yet. IF you find one, Please post it!

Thats funny! I am looking for something like that. I have been searching everywhere and I thought maybe I just missed something somewhere. I guess I am not the only one looking for free stuff and striking out.

Do you know of a good one that costs $$$$?

Has anyone tried this one?

Windows 7 Virtual Desktop Manager in 3D - Free Download | Windows 7 Themes

It is freeware but I don't know how good it is or how good it works.

The free tool does not have a 3D cubic, but is a great alternative to the paid virtual desktop manager. Besides, a 3D cubic is not the best solution for switching your virtual desktops, but let’s see how it all works

And the paid one listed next is the same "Deskspace" which is in my first post

Does anyone know the easiest way to get a 3d desktop, similar to the one in the first post, that is not real buggy? $$$$ or no, doesn't matter! Thanks

That looks like a nice add-on, though I wonder if it works with dual monitors...

I generaly find having dual monitors mostly obliviates the need for multiple desktops, but not necessarily entirely. Would be nice to beable to have the main screen work as shown and have the second monitor left completely alone with al the gadgets and other constant monitored windows open on it.
