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.

Are they so difficult? The way desktops work where like I assumed they work when I first was introduced to virtual desktops in 1998/1999 on KDE 1 (I think it was KDE 1). It caused me some confusion until I've understood how they really work(ed).
