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.

Folder view activity gives the "traditional desktop", the kind of desktop you see in kde3 or windows. It is basically gives a dumb virtual desktop that shows the contents of ~/Desktop folder

And of course it's KDE so you do not need it to be simply a dumb desktop. As the folder view have access to and can use all the regular kio-slaves. You can have a virtual desktop showing remote files, with ftp:// or one of the other remote slaves. Or perhaps one containing files based on a metadata search with neopomuk://.
