I worked a lot in the GNOME environment in Ubuntu and really liked it. But, I had to move to Windows due to some reasons.

Is there any program that can allow to me to switch between workspaces like I did in GNOME?

This is a pretty nice solution –  Alex Nov 17 '13 at 10:00
    
Now if only the Windows key in Win8.1 wouldn't catapult you back to the first desktop :( This is my primary way of launching any application via the keyboard. –  Alexander Rechsteiner Mar 14 at 10:24

Dexpot is a versatile desktop manager for Windows that is free for personal use. Most versions of Windows are supported. Through plugins it's possible to get Compiz-like effects like the rotating cube. I've had good results with it.
