I was very interested to find out that Sysinternals is still operational, and has this very interesting tool that allows multi-desktop capabilities on Windows XP, Win 7 and the latest Windows 8 (I’m using it on Win 8 Pro myself)

While this has none of the frills of the other virtual desktop software, this is a “real” desktop that’s being run – separate explorer.exe on each one, and each application in it’s own “natural” environment.

Very impressive! Though given Microsoft owns Sysinternals I do wonder why they couldn’t bring this out as an official ‘product’ and encourage people to use it.

Anyways if you’re interested, it can be downloaded at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/cc817881.aspx
