I'm using 0.5.3. I love the minimal "in-menubar" pager and have it configured to show nothing else (ctl-click in the pager to access the menu). The most annoying bug for me was that it didn't handle window-switching correctly when a secondary display was positioned left of the main display (eventually, I just moved the secondary display to the right). After Quicksilver and iTerm, this is the next app I add to a fresh MacOS install.

great app have been using it for a few years now, simple.

I would advise Virtue over this any day. Less buggy, has active desktop (what the comment below is, it allows wallpapers to be set per desktop) and is regularly updated by the creator.

With a simple recompile and a patch, it works (mostly) on Intel Macs. Sticky windows don't work though (v 0.5.3)

I also prefer this over Virtue. Virtue makes my desktop picture change for some reason. This program even helps me focus a bit because I use one desktop for just work things alone and then a separate one for News & Mail, etc. Great program, highly recommend this for people who want to increase productivity. Also great with Quicksilver so you can tell programs that aren't on the current desktop what to do, like iTunes.

The unofficial universal 0.6 version can be found here
I prefer it over the 0.5.3 PPC version or Virtue.

Universal binary is available (0.6) but this version seems to have lost some features and the desktop pager is more annoying. Back to 0.5.3 n my PB...

It is available for Intel Macs today, I'm sure. I'm using it right now.

Not available for Macs with Intel..
