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.

I am like you and do not use "desktops" and do not have the (apparently common) "workspace named Mail, workspace named Work" scenario. What I have is 32 virtual desktops on which I keep a varying number of windows for varying purposes. Reorganizing my work is just a matter of dragging some windows around.

Before someone exclaims "OMG WTF 32?!" - I rarely use more than 7, and so far have never hit 32. That's the point: there's always an empty one when I need it.
