Like most of Linux OS, Mac OS X has a great feature names Spaces that lets you group applications/opened files and keep your working space uncluttered and organized.
1. Use WindowsPager as Virtual Desktop to make more spaces for Windows 7
It lets you manage and group your desktop into multiple desktop spaces for different purpose (like working desktop, entertainment desktop, personal desktop…). This is very useful for advanced Windows users.
You can easily move opened windows between different desktops or copy and paste data as well, because they’re all just virtual desktops.
If you’re interesting, give it a try here
2. Use Sysinternals Desktops from Microsoft for to make Spaces like Mac OS X
This application is tiny (just 60KB) but it can give ultimate features: Multiple Desktops, Separation of Desktops into Processes…
However, Sysinternals Desktop cannot support users to move windows from one desktop to another, and there is no way for you to delete Desktop as well, the best way to get out of each Desktop is to Log Off at the right Desktop.
If the above restriction doesn’t bother you, give it a try at this address.
3. Use Finestra Virtual Desktops as equivalent Mac OS Spaces for Windows
If you’re running Windows 7 and like the Live Preview windows feature, maybe you’ll like this application.
While Sysinernals can give you 4 Desktops at the same time, this application can give you as many as you want. You can also customize wallpaper for each desktop like what you can do with Mac Spaces or watch the movement of Windows over Desktops visually.
And for the customization goodness, Finestra Virtual Desktop can give you a lots of configurations.

I also heard of Virtuawin that can help you to run multiple desktop on your Windows, but when I checked its homepage, the latest release was in September, 2010 so I decide not to write about it at the moment. I’ll update later if there’s new release from VirtuaWin because it’s a good application too.
