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.

Well, I frankly ONLY see americans (mostly the stupid ones) use the word 'communist' in the way the parent did. Same with socialist, Americans have no idea what it is about other than that it's bad and unamerican...

I mean, they call Obama an socialist and a communist. Well, in the EU, Obama would be a hardcore rightwing idiot and be treated like that.

Fair enough ;) The rampant ignorance *does* get on my nerves.

And I heartily agree with the Obama sentiment.

I think they are unaware of the historical context that lead to those social movements. In essence are unionist movements: workers movements asking for a fairer society.

"Americans" is such a horrible, inaccurate generalization. I'm American and I (and many other people I know) actually are educated in social, political, and economic theory and understand what exactly socialism and communism are (and aren't). Lets stop assuming Americans are dumb.
