Who needs Spaces?

Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) will have this new major feature called Spaces, which provides you with multiple desktops to organise and categorise your programmes into, allowing you to switch between different desktops for different purposes, so as to enhance productivity.

But who ever said that this invention is only a Leopard thing? Even my Tiger does so.

Jeremy just introduced to me Desktop Manager today when he came over to my house to get his Zen working, and it works just like Spaces.

Take a good look:

The four boxes here on the screen top represents my 4 desktops. The one selected is the 'Main Desktop'.

Now I have just switched to the desktop named as 'Others', which does not have any windows opened:

And I can always return to the 'Main Desktop' where I'm currently composing this post:

Cool? This small add-on to Mac OS X is available as a completely free download here. I think Apple is running out of that creative juice. But don't worry, I'm not about to become an 'Apple hater' anytime soon.

So is Microsoft the only copycat?
