I have tried a few Windows shell replacements, such as ports of blackbox
and other window managers too. The main catch is that there is usually
some program or other which behaves badly under the new setup.

I do use virtuawin, which is located at
http://virtuawin.sourceforge.net/. It's a native Windows app, and
basically changes little except for having multiple virtual desktops.
I'll probably look at Virtual Dimension as well, but virtuawin is small,
light and pretty much everything works OK.
