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.

not everyone needs "virtual desktops"

I disagree. People don't know they need them. They're like tabbed browsing: until you use it you don't know what you're missing. Maybe tabs aren't right for all situations and all people, but like virtual desktops they're an essential tool everyone should have available.
