VirtueDesktops

Version: 0.54 Beta 5 || Release Date: 2007-06-13 || License: GPL Developer: Tony Arnold | App Owner: tonyarnold

“VirtueDesktops” is a virtual desktop manager for Apple’s Mac OS. It offers features, eye candy and configurable options that no other desktop manager on the mac has added yet. Sadly, VirtueDesktops is no longer under active development. It is based upon the work done by Rich Wareham on DesktopManager (specifically the CGSPrivate headers), which is an alternate open-source virtual desktop application.

I wouldn't say you are. It's a very suspicious situation atm I would say.

Wow, interesting. Is there a changelog for this release?

Looks like someone from the open source community picked it up -- maybe we found a new project maintainer?

Desktop Manager UB available here:

Version 0.5.4r1

It's still usable, and the advantage over Desktop Manager is that it's UB.

I'm still crying inside from the developer discontinuing development of this app. Even with Spaces, there's a lot of Macs out there left running Tiger or Panther, which would benefit greatly from VirtueDesktops.

Very Unstable.
Switching back to Desktop Manager

Like the app-binding to specific desktop. Hate that those pref's seem to be lost half the time it launches. Which is often, as it crashes a lot. The launchd log watching kluge (see Lingon) doesn't work for me, either. Switching to DesktopManager for now.

This is like Spaces in Tiger. They aren't continuing development on this app probally because when Leopard comes out, Spaces will replace this app. Very cool app though!

Very nice. Nice and intuitive.
I also find that the alternstive desktop manager has the habit of deleting windows when switching back to one desktop.
This instability means that i'll keep with virtuedesktops for now :)
