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've tried them a few times, but never could figure out why it was any better than multiple monitors and a good taskbar/task manager. Maybe I'm not using them "right" or maybe I've never been shown how to use them "right".

Then again, I tend to work with maximised windows, and tabbed interfaces (Firefox, Chrome, Konsole, KRDC, Kate, etc).
