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.

Considering I have zero stuff on my desktop folder I don't think I would find this that useful, but I guess it's cool for those who do.

And I agree with the comment about the compiz cube. I already liked working with virtual desktops before that, but since I got used to it I can't go back.

I agree, icons on my desktop drive me up the wall.

What I would really like is if each virtual desktop could have different widget layouts. Can Activities do that?

Yes. That's the whole point. ;)
