Possible Duplicates:

Virtual desktop(alt+ctrl+1,2,3,4,…) like linux on windows 7

Features that are important to me:

  1. Keyboard support
  2. Fast.
  3. Keyboard support
  4. Clean
  5. Keyboard support
  6. Windows 7/x64 (doesn't have to be x64, but needs to work on x64 Windows)

Oh, and it would be great if it had good keyboard support.

There is Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell's Desktops. Desktops allows you to organize your applications on up to four virtual desktops. It's only 60 KB and supports Windows XP and higher.

Alternatively, you can use the free Finestra Virtual Desktops. It also has Windows 7 and keyboard shortcut support.

The one I use is http://virtuawin.sourceforge.net

It's free, open source etc.

It works on Windows 7 64bit and goes down to Windows XP /Windows Server 2003 (as far as I got to test).

It doesn't have a fancy desktop cube or anything but is easy to use and the only visual thing (apart from switching desktops) is a little taskbar icon

Alternatively you can use Dextops which offers a lot of flexibility and while it may not be as pretty as something like Deskspace it does more for adding efficiency to how you organize your workspace. Thre are a couple other options like Cubedesktop, I found a review of all 3 here: http://blog.netflowdevelopments.com/2012/09/19/3d-desktop-cube-reviews-and-comparisons-windows/
