OSNews, Generic OSes Taking a break from reporting on the latest netbook or phone rumours, Engadget posted an article yesterday about several elements in desktop operating systems writer Paul Miller finds outdated. While there's some interesting stuff in there, there's also a lot to discuss.

The only time I see my desktop is when I log in, after than it's almost always covered by, usually maximized, windows. This is also why I totally fail to see the point of desktop widgets. Or fancy wallpapers for that matter.


IMO that's one of the biggest advantages of virtual desktops. I can get a unobstructed view of the desktop's contents just by switching to an empty desktop - without having to minimize or juggle currently-open apps/windows.
