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.

Projects should contain activities

If they introduce projects, these projects should contain the activities, and not the other way round.

I.e you start a new project, and define a number of tasks/workspaces for it, and along with the workspaces there should be a project unique desktop.

Adding projects to tasks like they do in this version feels awkward. After all you are likely to use the same files in many tasks in the same project, e.g. you may have an e-mail task and a word processing task that may share all the files in the project.

Each project should probably have some sort of zeitgeist view of all the files that have been created or used in each project.

Apart from this, there really should be a way to minimize the window in a task in Gnome shell, so that you could maximize them again without going to the main menu.
