would multiple virtual desktops consume multiple system resources?
Easiest way to find that out would be to open a
terminal, run top, sort by memory usage (press
shift-m) and add a few virtual desktops :)

Cheers,

Interesting. Never needed it in Windows or in Gnome since I don't run anything in full screen. (OK, excepting UT2003) It's sure nice having a 19" monitor and a video card with enough memory to run at a hefty resolution with a gazillion colors. :-)

a) No, you can have as many desktops as you like, resource usage is insignificant

b) There is a "show desktop" button in gnome 2.2
