1 = Mail, Web, OpenOffice (fullscreen apps)
2 = Eclipse + terminals with running app and log
3 = Terminals for compiling, version control, other development-related things
4 - 7 = More terminals for various purposes, on demand
8 = VMware
9 = Local admin stuff (Update Manager) and private things.

I prefer a specific arrangement of terminals, so I usually put few of them in the same workspace. Nevertheless, I very seldom use all workspaces. But I don't feel that a spare workspace costs anything, so why not keep them around...

2. Email & personal web browsing, media (video)

1. Primary activity, e.g. coding, uni work
2. Secondary activity, e.g. IM, reading news
3. Music
4. Misc overflow, e.g. long-running compilation/render, virtual machines

By: Tobias Wed, 12 Nov 2008 00:53:41 +0000 You should try xmonad with DynamicWorkspaces. It allows dynamic creation and removal of workspaces with meaningful names. So you have no static set of workspaces. It changes depending on what you're working on and allows you to manage a lot more workspaces, than you're used to. Perhaps someone will implement something similar for gnome or kde sometime in the future. At the moment I have 'web', five workspaces named after different projects I work on, 'music', 'gentoo', 'learn', 'mysql', 'communication', 'remote'
