Hasn't that been available to Linux users for years? tut,tut Martin, you're slipping :-)


I'm actually not a fan of the multiple desktops feature of Linux, and I'm not too impressed that Microsoft chose this as a feature to bring to Windows. I'm more limited in monitors than I am in desktops; I don't need more desktop workspaces to confuse which program I left running where.
