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.

Stopped working under snowleopard. :(
I'll try rebuilding/reinstalling to see if that helps.

VirtueDesktop is the best desktop manager ever. Even Spaces fails to stand up against VirtueDesktop.

Being a long time Linux user I wouldn't be able to live without my virtual desktops, and VirtueDesktops saved me, thanks!

Note VMWare 1.1RC has fixed the fullscreen bug it had with Virtue, it is working great together now! :-)

Check your log files!
Last night I noticed that my library was over 9 gigs, while another user's was about 250 MB. After about twenty minutes of searching, I found the VirtueDesktops log. You're probably thinking, "It's a log file- how big can that possibly be?" I'll tell you: 8.24 gigs! I tried to open it in Console, but the system immediately bogged down and I had to force-quit Console. Then I opened it in Firefox, and that worked. However, after a few minutes, there was still text loading! This file is huge! So, I used AppDelete to get rid of the program and all its affiliates, and I lived happily ever after (so far). Maybe this was an isolated incident, but I recommend you check.
Oh yeah, it's located in /Users/[user]/Library/Logs/

VirtueDesktops is not being actively developed again, and Florent has certainly not made any promises to continue contributing - he's making fixes as he can. If you are a heavy user of VirtueDesktops, you should upgrade to the latest betas and see how you go - they are much stabler, and have much more consistent behaviour.

Mad props, indeed :)

Mad propz to Florent Bruneau for contributing to the changes for beta 5:

"Changes
* Fixes to localisation;
* Miscellaneous fixes for stability;"

I think here's the changelog for the Beta4. It also reveals who the submitter of the beta fixes are.
