This page claims it doesn't work on newer versions of windows, but it's working on Windows 10 perfectly for me.

Seems no longer dangerous

Maybe no longer dangerous. Recent virustotal scans of installer and portable download show 0 threats, and the website states that they removed some kind of advertising tool (OpenCandy) as of 2016-02-15.

It can also show miniatures of all your desktops

It can also show a miniature of all your desktops in your task bar's info area, with icons of the open windows on them. You know, like that other OS... ;)

Been using it for some years now, and keeps getting better and better. Runs smoothly on Win 7 and the plugins give it a nice eye candy. The only "complain" that I have, if you could call it so, are the icons, which are low quality. But maybe I'm just too picky :P All in all, a great piece of software.

Dexpot was a brilliant find, it has installed and works without any problems on both my XP Pro and Windows 7 Machines and works well with the dual-screen setup on my XP box effectively doubling the desktop capacity (ie if you choose 5 desktops using Dexpot you have the equivalent of 10...all the way up to dexpots 20 desktops giving you the capacity for 40!!)

Just want to point out that they seem to have cleaned up the installer. Scanned the current download and found found only one issue 'BehavesLike.Win32.Tool.rc' which sounds benign/expected.
