My (three) desktop(s):
<a href='http://koti.mbnet.fi/nindra/enlight-desk1.png' target='_blank'>Desktop 1</a> Mainly for web browser (Firefox)
<a href='http://koti.mbnet.fi/nindra/enlight-desk2.png' target='_blank'>Desktop 2</a> IRC (SSH-connection to my serverbox)
<a href='http://koti.mbnet.fi/nindra/enlight-desk3.png' target='_blank'>Desktop 3</a> Everything else. Skype, MSN/Jabber (Gaim 2.0b5), games, terminals etc.

Good examples what you CANNOT do in Windows... Like change the whole interface to another one (it's <a href='http://www.enlightenment.org/' target='_blank'>Enlightenment</a> what I'm using now) :P

Your desktops confuse me nindra. :P

I dont get why youd want different desktops for different programs. Dont the programs sit ontop of the desktop? :unsure:

For quick changing between programs. Just swing the mouse to left/right border, desktop changes and there, you can see what people has speaken in IRC or what somebody has IMd to you. I don't like playing with alt+tab to find that random IM-window just to see that somebody has said "brb", it's much easier to swing the mouse, read the "brb"-message, and then swing back to another desktop and continue whatever you was doing... But it can be necessary on the third desktop because I tend to stuff it up with different windows, like KDevelop, Quanta, terminal, Gaim, Gaim's convo-window (Thank god the convos are tabbed) and so on. My "record" is 10 windows or something, ATM there's "only" 6.

i got scared when I saw Internet Explorer and Outlook :D

But don't use outlook express, use Mozilla Thunderbird ;)

I don't use outlook. XD It's my dad's old computer. I've been trying to convert my family to firefox-ism for some time now. My mom is convinced that everything you download off of the internet contains viruses.
Go Guitar hero! :D

There's a little "prnt scrn" button in the top right of the keyboard. Press that then ctrl v it into paint.
Voila, a screen shot.
I learned how to do that on Fangathering. :D
