Moonlighting on company time? It's wise to keep offenses that constitute just cause for dismissal on the down-low. Virtual desktops can save you by creating mini-workspaces, each one running its own suite of apps. Think of them as parallel universes. Mac OS X (starting with version 10.5), Linux and Unix all provide native support for virtual desktops.

Other virtual desktops include Desktops, Dexpot, and VirtuaWin.
