I need a good plugin for seeing and switching between desktops. I remember seeing a video where someone used a desktop switcher which was just a fullscreen grid of desktops, so the screen was simply divided into x parts and each one showed a desktop. In my installation of compiz there are two desktops switchers: wall shows a thin stripe of desktops in the middle of the screen, while expo showed a zoomed out view. My problem with both of these is that the previews are really small. Is there a plugin available which shows larger previews?

Compiz with Expo can display your desktops as in 4 desktops in a square filling the monitor. How much bigger do you want a preview?

Ideally I would like the desktop previews to resize so that they take up all available space, with no black empty space around. Using 8 desktops in a row made them quite small, but splitting them up to two rows of four is a good idea, Ill try it.
