this has been on my wish-list for years, but unfortunately nobody has come up with a widget yet.
I've been thinking about doing it myself for a while, but I've so many half-finished projects that it's better for me (and for users) if I finish them instead of jumping on yet another new project.
BTW, there's a way of having sort of a virtual desktop widget.
These are the steps:
1) Create a desktop scheme were the windows borders are set to 1 pixel.
One problem with this approach is that, whenever you click on the XCenter, the virtual desktop window disappears for a while.
If I remember correctly the virtual desktop does not have an "always on top" flag. I solved this problem adding it to the bottom border for activation, so that when I click on the XCenter (with the effect of hiding the virtual desktop) all that I need to do is to move the mouse a little further down to hit the bottom border, and the virtual desktop resurfaces.
Hope this helps...
