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.

I think it would be better if the files are separated by their meta-data. You just add workspace=1 to the meta-data and that's it.

Nice idea, but wouldn't that require a fully metadata-capable filesystem to do correctly? Otherwise, you'd end up with dot files like those OS X generates and wouldn't that just be wonderful.
