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.

"And get off my lawn!"

I felt the same way about the KDE4 K menu when I first tried out KDE 4.2; I hated it. But that lasted about a day. The combination of setting up my most frequently used applications in the favorites section and then using search for everything else has made my life SOOOO much easier. I was just forced to downgrade my Fedora 12 system at work to the ancient RHEL5 with KDE3, and hunting through menus to find the application I want got old really, really fast. The actual menu portions of the KDE3 menu are better/more intuitive than its KDE4 counterpart, but the KDE4 version makes searching through menus obsolete. And, in my experience, that's a very, very good thing.
