Windows 10 Multiple Desktop Is Old Hat Already

Microsoft's forthcoming operating system, Windows 10, will feature multiple desktops built into the OS. This is a technique that allows you some of the functionality of using multiple monitors, but on a single screen.

You can have several "virtual" desktop screens running at once, and can switch between them as needed - this can be useful in keeping your sanity when you have a lot of windows open at the same time.

This is a welcome move from Microsoft, and indeed there have been 3rd party programs emulating this functionality for Windows for some time, but just remember Apple's OS X and many flavors of Linux have had this ability built-in for several years.

I have a short video below showing the Workspaces switcher in Linux Mint. I have some other "how-to" and "quick look" videos here also.
