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.

Yeh, but BeOS didn't just have virtual desktops. Each desktop (Workspaces in BeOS/Haiku) can have it's own wallpapaper and even screen bit depth/resolution settings. I'm not even too sure if it can have seperate icons on each Workspace.
