Editors' Review

+
Simpler to use than its competitors, Ultra Virtual Desktop is effective, but it doesn't always play well with Windows XP. The program enables you to create up to 10 desktops on one computer. The interface is limited to a menu that pops up from the system tray. You can switch among desktops by pressing Ctrl and a number key. Ultra Virtual Desktop's resource footprint is reasonable (8MB of RAM) and it doesn't slow performance, but on Windows XP the program crashed when we tried to access Settings. Busy office workers may well find Ultra Virtual Desktop a welcome, low-overhead way to expand their work spaces.

"Wuz all the fuss about? This stuff is FABULOUS!"

September 08, 2004

 |  Version: Ultra Virtual Desktop 2.3

Summary

I don't get why EVERYBODY else has given this a bad rating. The installation process was smooth (tho I was a little upset that it didn't include the msvbvm60.dll in the program; it downloaded it while installing.) Anyway, after installing, I run Spybot Search & Destroy. Nothing flaged. Norton: nothing flagged. My computer has a mere 64mb of ram, and so I was also very pleased at the AmAzInGlY low amount of ram it took up! I think they *could* put in some more features, but I also like the utterly streamlined interface. Thank you for a great program!!
