Warren thanks for the link. The Alt-tab switcher is outstanding! I was a
bit disappointed with the VDM though, it seems that it won't allow for
customized icons per desktop. I was hoping to be able to make a "clean"
desktop for taking screen shots, hosting webinars, etc. whilst maintain a
separate space for my usually icon-covered desktop. Now that I've got this
thought rolling around i my head I'll have to search for some other another
tool that will allow for custom icon sets.
