... a viewport that snaps to the different workspaces, which have differing backgrounds. Icons in a viewport can be arranged differently in each workspace.

With this mockup, one has more immediate control of the workspace backgrounds and can directly "save" and "recall" an individual workspace.

Of course, for many years, virtual desktops (or "pagers") have had the capability of differing backgrounds.

Nice tweak, but I would rather not use bloated, tard-centric Gnome.
