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.

There is no difference between multiple and virtual desktops for all intents and purposes.


Except that there is an important difference, so your premise is incorrect and your conclusion flawed.
