Multiple Desktops- What you use 'em for?
Hey everyone. Just wonderin' what you all use the other 3 desktops for.

Me personally, I just use 2. My main desktop and another desktop I slam all my one-click programs on :P

I use dual monitors. No need to switch desktops. :)

1. browser, xmms, quick terminal tasks
2. ssh terminal, ftp, compiling programs, etc.
3. graphics, gimp, html stuff
4. giFT, other browsers if i need them
alt+F term: kernel compiling, lynxing (to coin a new term), nethack :D

i love the multiple desktop, a major improvement over windows' single desktop design.

-> p.s., this isn't strictly a mandrake question, so heads up that a mod will probably move it.

As the other post says i also separate my dfesktops in Browsing, Music and Instant Messaging, Mail and Compiling programs.

There is a multi desktop system in windows, with Nvidia cards but its pretty poor. To use two monitors is cool, but if you use that i recommend tou conect the two monitors to one graphic card, best performance.
