author alang

TopDesk, an application that brings Vista Flip3D and Mac OS X Expose functionality to Windows XP currently looking for a beta tester for their latest version TopDesk 1.5 Beta. They are especially interested on users of a previous version of TopDesk and have experienced one of the following issues:
* Incompatibility with games and other full screen 3D accelerated applications.
* Non-traditional Alt-Tab behavior while using Flip layout.
* Error messages when running TopDesk at startup.
* TopDesk failing to run after resuming from standby or unlocking.
* TopDesk failing to run under a non-administrator user account.
* Problems using the mouse scroll wheel during tiling.
* Desktop wallpaper changes not being detected.

The final release of TopDesk going to have the following features:
* Improved Game Compatibility - TopDesk now automatically disables itself when other full screen 3D accelerated applications are open.
