Linux Mint ..the one that I have.. Helena I think, well.. it uses a virtual desktop. This means that you can have SEVERAL desktops. Man I love it.
On Windows program I have, IDaily Diary does not like to be minimized. It won’t come back up again. Has to run maximized, so lo and behold, the virtual desktop comes in.
This thing is great. Man I never tried Vista or Windows 7, even if I could get them free, and who wants to?
