Instead of modes, I really like virtual desktops way more.

The implementations that exist are not perfect, e.g. I would like if applications would startup on the virtual desktop were you started it (double-click, terminal, whatever), but overally, I liked the my GNOME2, with 4x2 permament desktops.

Now I am not using virtual desktops anymore at all, because I permanently have to fight against GNOME3 creating and closing new desktops.

I am still homeless.

The argument is no longer "I choose Linux/Desktop because I love it the most", it has seriously become "I choose Linux/Desktop because it is the least evil" (mathematically the same, but you get it).

I've never found DE virtual desktops to be particularly useful. In fact, whenever I use KDE, GNOME, or Xfce I turn them off.

Conversely, when using dwm I use tags all the time (I even set up apps to use specific ones.)

I wonder why my behavior is so different, it's not like KDE, GNOME, etc. have hard to use virtual desktops... I just find that I don't use them.
