Multiple desktops are a feature that I’m finding more and more useful on Ubuntu. I can have an entire workspace with all open applications related to a project I’m working on, then just switch to a different workspace with all the applications for an entirely different project. Think of it sort of like tabs, but for your entire desktop rather than just for Firefox. It’s something I wanted desperately at work, as I often need to juggle multiple instances of the same application when I’m working on two projects at the same time. Fortunately it turns out Microsoft made a Power Toy called ”Virtual Desktop Manager” that does the same thing. Now I can have one desktop for Project A, and then when I need to dive onto Project B, I just switch to a new desktop that’s completely clutter free.
