Gnome The problem with just about every virtual desktop implementation is just that - they're virtual. This means that beyond the ability to move windows to specific desktops, you're still looking at exactly the same desktop, no matter what virtual desktop number you switched to. A mockup for GNOME Shell is trying to take the virtual out of virtual desktop.

Wow. I had no clue you could do that. You could have a different wallpaper on each desktop in KDE 3, but I had no clue that you could do that in KDE 4. I knew nothing about "activities," and I thought that they just hadn't gotten around to implementing it yet in KDE 4. I'll obviously have to look into this further.

Of course, as awesome as KDE is, it's usually so awesome that you don't have a clue about a large portion of what's there and what it can do. There are probably dozens of great shortcuts that I haven't stumbled on yet, let alone full-blown features that I don't have a clue exists.
