What are people saying about DeskSpace

Steven Guy I'm fairly impressed with the Otaku Software website and applications... except for their originality. And if eye-candy is really that important to you, give Linux a try. Most distributions come with this (literally. As in, identical, but with more capabilities, and the ability to run on considerably slower machines. Check out Beryl some time), or it's incredibly easy to install. And Beryl is completely free, and has many many many times more features.

James Stewart Steven: Many people, for many reasons, cannot switch to Linux, yet still want to experience the 3D features available in newer Linux distributions. Otaku Software develops applications that allow them to do so.

Robin D. I read elsewhere that the author of this program is working on new features or plugins like Beryl/Compiz have. If I buy now will I have to pay again for updates or will program updates be free?

Mary Wilson It looks like it could be a good program but I could not get the program to work at all and had to unload it. In addition, I found that the documentation did not help at all to get the screen to rotate to differnt desktops. Once they can fix the documentation problem, I think that this will be a great program.

James Stewart Mary: From the documentation:

"To move to another desktop, hold down Ctrl+Alt+Shift, then click and drag the mouse pointer or use the Arrow keys. Alternatively, you can cycle through desktops by scrolling the mouse wheel. Once a desktop has been selected, you can switch to it by releasing the Ctrl+Alt+Shift activation hot key combination."

If you're experiencing problems trying to switch desktops, please contact us and we'll be more than happy to take you through the steps.

charlie arehart James, you seem to be very responsive to comments here. Let me then offer this: I found the demos and videos (went to the product site) attractive, but they all show photos of lovely places.

How about showing video of what the result would look like with real applications? I don't have pretty pictures, even on my desktop, but with 2 gig of memory I do often have lots of running applications.

I'd appreciate seeing both what it would look like switching normal desktop apps, and more important, how one might organize them as virtual desktops. As others have said, eye candy is one benefit, but highlighting practicality and usefulness might go a long way toward bringing in more buyers.

I myself didn't even want to take the time and effort to download and try it myself. I expected the demos to help me before taking that step, thus this sincere feedback.

Steven Avery Hi Folks,

This one I will pass on ..

However when I researched this genre GoScreen stood out as the simplest, strongest, stablest, supported product. No fancy pics, no delicate hooks (this one has fancy pics, some others have delicate op sys hooks). So allow me to recommend it for a Bits du Jour resesarch project, Alex is the fellow's name. (Now I don't even have it loaded at the moment, however the recommendation stands :-) .)

Shalom,
Steven Avery

James Stewart Steven: Thank you for pointing out one of our many competitors.

Other differences of note between the two products include the price (GoScreen is $28 USD, while DeskSpace is $19.95, or $9.95 with the Bits du Jour discount) and development schedule (GoScreen is updated around twice a year, DeskSpace is updated around once a month).

I'd urge everyone who requires this type of functionality to try out as many virtual desktop products as possible, and then purchase the one that best suites their needs.

Drew Bourrut Steven says that for this genre GoScreen stood out. I've been using multi-desktop software for years and at the moment the only one I'll use is AltDesk. The problem with the offered product is that it only allows 4 desktops (and I wonder how it handles multiple monitors. I use Altdesk with 7 desktops on two monitors although shortly I will be going to three monitors.

James Stewart Drew: DeskSpace supports multiple monitors. You can see this in the "Key Features" listed above - "Display desktops in 3D on multiple monitors".

We'll be providing support for six desktops very shortly, and support for even more desktops (for the real power users) in the near future.

Naiche Lujan Given that a Windows License costs around $200, it seems that the cost/feature ratio is a bit out of whack. To add a single feature like this should cost no more than $3.

Yes, it is a nice workflow management feature to have, but if I could spend $500 on nice features for a $200 OS if I was paying $10/feature.

Yes, developmental costs are the rational for the cost, but look at open source projects. Volunteers are creating wonderful software in their spare time, not charging for it.

Our software market model needs to be renovated in my opinion.

Marketing rebuttal? James?

Nico Westerdale If I could chime in on this one Naiche. I run the daily deals here and I also sell software through Iconico.com. Selling software as an independent for $10 to $20 dollars is not an easy business; and I think the development effort and time taken is vastly underestimated by the public. Many developers that feature software on here are working nights and weekends to get their software out, taking on day jobs so that they can have a chance to do something they love.

Companys who produce operating systems or open source software are making money through a very different method. Open Source works because the companies can charge huge premiums for their consulting time and support contracts. The actual cost of Windows is subsidised as it leverages a platform that Microsft can sell it's applications and services on top of.

I've had many people contact me over the years with the 'just make is $1/free argument', but realistically that doesn't wash for a 1-5/man company. Wages and rent have to be paid, and that can only come from the user.

I know there are great open source projects like Firefox, but the fact of the matter is that that too is heavily subsidised. Google and Mozilla have poured a lot of money into the development, and it was also funded by individual developers and their employees as they took time away from their jobs.

So take a step back and look at the price of today's software, $9.95. Is that really so huge that you can't afford it?

Naiche Lujan Glad to hear your perspective. James' tone was getting me riled up.

I love the ability that this software offers, however, I really can't afford to spend $10 every time I find some feature I like, that is a reality, as I have to pay rent as well.

My intent is not to be deleterious to the software community. I am not suggesting that software developers should work for free, this is really a huge issue, larger than this particular piece of software. As you mention, other companies have found ways to subsidize their efforts so that end-users don't have to be rich to take advantage of the many things a computer can offer.

But, of course this is more of an exercise in philosophy than in reality, the market has evolved the way it has and will continue to adapt to what users and developers bring to the table.

Is $9.95 to much to ask? Well, my answer is yes, but then again, I am only one person.

Nico Westerdale Thanks for elaborating Naiche, I certianly take on your point of view. You do hilight one of the root problems in the software development industry, which is development is expensive, and users don't want to pay. One of the reasons that this site works is that it expoits that and genuinely gives users a good deal. I'd certainly like to discover more ways to subsidize small companies, but from working in the industry for many years it's often very hard to find these opportunities. I'm all ears for any suggestions.

Robert Swanbum For 9.99, I'm going to try it. I'm wondering from a performance perpective does it affect anything? I don't care about development, marketing blah, blah, blah - I just want something that is functional, easy and non-system affecting. It's not like it's a recurring cost. For 9.99 I can see the pictures behind all the icons and get some sort of organization to it.

Mike S I tried the program and like it a lot. All the background scenes and pretty pictures can be turned off, and transition times are fully adjustable, so if you're looking for quick operation (like me) you can graphically rotate and switch desktops quick enough to make you dizzy. There are also hotkeys to go directly to a desktop without the 3D effects. Multiple monitors are handled just like two single monitors - the desktops rotate on both displays at the same time (synchronized). Lots of "undocumented features" exist, like the list of all open windows popping up from the tray icon, then click the one you want and it switches to that desktop with the window activated. Lots of goodies, and for $10 doesn't seem like you can go wrong!

Michael Mortimer Well I have been on computers for 18 years. Have spent lots of money on computers and software.

I like this program. Installed easily and was easy to set up and try.

It's useful for having multiple desktops, which is handy for me because I work a lot with my desktop [I place all my files and work on the desktop so I know where to find things. Later, when done I transfer files to various folders on one of my two 500GB SATA drives].

Bottom line, it's only $10 from Bits. Here in San Francisco that is the price of a lunch and Starbucks coffee during break time. So big deal. It's worth more than $10 IMHO.

Andy Hook I gave this one a try, after a little confusion (which almost always comes from me not reading instructions..but hey I'm a man we dont do things like that) I got it to work, and after carefully looking through the options was able to customise it, it does exactly what it says on the tin !!

Personally i think it works great, and i cant believe that people are whinging about a $10 price tag (especially as I'm in the uk so its half price).

Anyways I'm off to get my code for this gem.

Sheila Vakili I downloaded the product, finally figured out how to manuever the cubes, then the program began duplicating the icons and windows until all the sides of the cube were the same. :(

I emailed Support twice and they responded promptly. The second email in which I vented about the lack of setup information in their Manual must have hit a nerve. Instead of helping me solve the problem, they very politely refunded my money. All in all, not a good experience with Otaku Software.

P.S. I uninstalled the program and it won't leave! Still hanging around on the corners of my screen.

Brett I I tried the demo and within an hour bought the full version. It works seamlessly on both my XP and Vista installation. The only "windows" it copies to all screens are ones that aren't actual windows (don't show up on the taskbar, like Trillian). And yes, by default it copies all icons to all windows - if you want different icons on different desktops, there is an option to do that as well. My only complaint is that the SkyBox images are pretty low res so when spread across the screen it doesn't look so great. Anybody know where to get some more?

James Stewart Sheila: I'm very sorry you feel that way, but no nerve was struck :)

Based on your support questions we felt that you expected DeskSpace to offer a certain set of functionality. As no current or future version of DeskSpace will offer that functionality, the software will never meet the expectations you had when you purchased.

As such, we decided to give you a refund. The software is still yours, and we're still more than happy to help you through any and all problems you have with the software, but you are now no longer out of pocket for software that doesn't do exactly what you want it to.

I also understand you didn't find the Help manual very clear, and I'm very concerned about that. I feel that we've gone out of our way to make the setup and usage documentation as easy and straightforward as possible: "run the program, press and hold CTRL+ALT+SHIFT, then click and drag the mouse and/or press the arrow keys to move to other desktops". However, it's obvious that the documentation is not as straightforward as we thought. We'll continue to improve the documentation, and would really appreciate any feedback you could give us.
