Windows For Microsoft, the traditional desktop is old news. It's on its way out, it's legacy, and the harder they claim the desktop has equal rights, the sillier it becomes. With companies, words are meaningless, it's actions that matter, and here Microsoft's actions tell the real story. The company has announced the product line-up for Visual Studio 11, and the free Express can no longer be used to create desktop applications. Message is clear.

The windows interface has always been very poor for heavy multitaskers anyway... No virtual workspaces, apps geared up to run maximized, crude ways like alt-tab for switching apps, limited space to display currently running apps.

I typically have 10 virtual workspaces, any of which can be accessed instantly with alt+number, all of which have several apps laid out in them ready to use and i remember which number corresponds to which use.

Virtual Workspaces suck if you don't have a good spacial memory (such as I).
