You may remember an application called Yod’m that we wrote about back in March. It brought the famous 3D Linux virtual desktop manager over to the Windows side, but it was pretty rough around the edges. Well, I’m proud to say that a lot of work has been done to make it a lot better, but there’s a catch.

Otaku Software, the creators of the popular TopDesk application, snatched up the Yod’m developer shortly after the free version was released. Now to get the software, renamed to DeskSpace, you’ll need to plop down $19.95 for use beyond the 14 day trial. It might be worth it after you checkout the features:

  • Work and play on multiple desktops.
  • Display multiple desktops in stunning 3D.
  • Quickly switch between desktops using the mouse and keyboard.
  • Drag windows between desktops by moving them to the sides of the screen.
  • Display desktops in 3D on multiple monitors.
  • Configure the hot keys and mouse buttons used to switch between desktops, and how DeskSpace displays and manages desktop.
  • Use DeskSpace in multiple languages.

Personally I’ve installed virtual desktop managers before, and often times forget to use them. For that reason I didn’t even try this out, and definitely wouldn’t spend the money on it. Although I know it would impress a lot of my friends. :)

Here’s a quick video I grabbed that shows DeskSpace in action:
