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.

You can as long as you're in a recent KDE 4 release. (4.2 or higher, if I remember correctly)

In 4.2, you have to manually edit a config file because the UI wasn't ready by the string freeze, but in 4.3 and above, there's a "Different activity for each desktop" checkbox under SystemSettings --> Desktop --> Multiple Desktops.

For that matter, you can also use a separate activity for the MacOS-style dashboard via the dropdown box in SystemSettings --> Desktop --> Workspace.
