    "It works...but might take a while to get the hang of it"

    August 24, 2013  |   By ejzllanes96

    Pros

    -Very customizable (hotkeys, positions of desktops, etc.)
    -Open source. You can modify it whenever you like(according to the EULA)
    -Very snappy without those annoying fading or whatever effects. Once you switch, it shows up without any nonsense

    Cons

    -NOT pick up and play. You need to learn it by fiddling around
    -Does NOT have simple drag and drop interface
    -Does NOT have a preview image of the desktop
    -Can be confusing at first

    -You have to program the hotkeys yourself. The default one does not work. Mine is programmed "Ctrl + Left" and "Ctrl + Right" (I chose to have 3 desktops placed horizontally)

    Summary

    My hotkeys are programmed as "Ctrl + Left" and "Ctrl + Right" (I chose to have 3 desktops placed horizontally)

    Its not easy at first and you have to have patience and an open mind to learn it. But once you get the hang of it, you will enjoy less clutter and more productivity. This program still needs more development in the user interface, though.
