( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

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:

  1. E-Mail (mutt), IM (Gaim)
  2. Monitoring 1 (browser on Nagios, xterm on qstat (for the Sun Grid Engine), xload on the various servers I need to watch)
  3. Monitoring 2 (tabbed browser on the Production systems)
  4. Development (browser, various xterm ssh sessions, Razor bug tracking)
  5. Sometimes Development, sometimes Support
  6. Spare
  7. Spare
  8. Sometimes additional browsing
  9. Personal (browser on GMail, Slash, Groklaw, PerlMonks)
No way would I be able to fit all that on any Windows desktop.
