Since I got my Intel iMac at work back in January I've gone Apple and used Expose instead of my familiar virtual desktops. I had even come close to convincing myself it was a reasonable change.

Then today I saw the Smackbook Pro hack and ended up at the site for VirtueDesktops. A couple hours later I realize just how much I missed the cleanliness of virtual desks. Sure, some OS X features like Expose are fun, but they work that much better with virtual desks than they do without.

Now if only there were a key sequence to toggle off visibility of the icons on my desktop.
