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 doubt there are many (if any) 'dumb' americans on this forum. The FOSS crowd is generally above average in terms of intelligence.

I also doubt americans are any more or less stupid, on average, than europeans. However, as is said by someone else here, there is certainly a big gap between how Europeans and Americans perceive socialism and communism. Americans have been scared by news and government propaganda of socialism and communism - while the words itself already convey they are about being social and caring about community... The words simply convey a much more negative meaning in the US than in Europe. In itself that's not stupid, but I do think the view US citizens have of communism and socialsm is much further from the truth than the EU ideas about it. Moreover, they underestimate how the bad side of esp communism has already infiltrated their country and is actually being pushed by their own government (talking about the many restrictions on individual freedom).
