I’ve never thought much about Virtual Desktops in OS X although I have used it frequently on Linux Desktops and at the beginning in OS X Panther.
My thought always was: why more than one Desktop, when I’ve got Expos?. After watching the following video I might have changed my mind.
Virtual Desktops and Expos? seems to be the way to got!
See Spaces and Expos??of the upcoming OS X 10.5 Leopard in action:
it looks pretty cool
but it seems that the same reason won’t let me use it on mac os x. the same reason why I stopped using it hardcore on linux. i am not able to see notifications of programms or changes in a program window when it is on another “space”.
perhaps apple have found a solution – growl is also a way, but I think spaces is not es good in productive areas for me then apple tries to tell me 😉
something I forgot 😉
lost in space(s) will become a new meaning on apples mac os x 😉
I have to agree to you both, it looks awesome, especially the dynamic placing of the spaces.
But the reason I really write a comment is, that this is not true:
[quote herbert]”i am not able to see notifications of programms or changes in a program window when it is on another ???space???.”[/quote]
I use Gnome and xorg and when a program window changes the Window List in the Gnome Panel notifies me of the change beyond the boundaries of Spaces.
The same shows with the Notification Area in the Gnome Panel which is intended for Notification Icons.
