Well, Spaces does that.

Although I don't know what "Ubuntu-style multiple desktops" are.

You (and windows) can switch between them with the keyboard or clicking on the pager. So yes, Spaces it is. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jun 17 '10 at 19:04

As already pointed out, Spaces does it. Hyperspaces enhances it (shareware).

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – Ivo Flipse Jul 15 '12 at 21:41
Ivo, i've been on StackOverflow since it was alpha, I do know about this, but I seriously believe that the link you provided, doesn't fully apply here. I'm not linking to a reply. i'm not linking to a blog. I'm linking to a company. When/if that company no longer exists, then the whole answer won't be useful anyway. – Martín Marconcini Jul 15 '12 at 21:45
Guess you're right, I just wanted you to add some additional information, because simply linking to a product is not really a great answer. – Ivo Flipse Jul 15 '12 at 21:47
