You're welcome -- since I started using Xwindows and Windowmaker, I can't imagine going back to Windows with a single desktop, and I'm really quite surprised that no one's done anything to address that on Windows.
At work I'm set up with 10 desktops on a dual-headed system:
- E-Mail (mutt), IM (Gaim)
- Monitoring 1 (browser on Nagios, xterm on qstat (for the Sun Grid Engine), xload on the various servers I need to watch)
- Monitoring 2 (tabbed browser on the Production systems)
- Development (browser, various xterm ssh sessions, Razor bug tracking)
- Sometimes Development, sometimes Support
- Sometimes additional browsing
- Personal (browser on GMail, Slash, Groklaw, PerlMonks)
would I be able to fit all that on any Windows desktop.
