Boost Productivity with Workspaces

,----[ Quote ]
| Most often its not the case that you have 
| only one application open at a particular 
| time on your computer. With hardware 
| becoming cheaper & faster, multi-tasking 
| has become a norm. Its a common sight today 
| to have a media-player, web browser, chat 
| client & an image editor all running in 
| realtime on one’s desktop. Though the 
| computers can handle such multi-tasking the 
| user’s productivity most often than not 
| gets crippled. Blame it on to the cluttered 
| desktop for the decrease in productivity. 
| Half of the user’s time is wasted in 
| finding the right application window. 
| Grouping similar windows is handy but still 
| not too much either. However, most of the 
| user’s are unaware of the feature called 
| ‘Workspaces’ in Linux Desktop Environments. 
| Almost all desktop environment offer this 
| feature enabled by default. It is set to 2 
| or 4 workspaces by default but can be 
| altered to provide many more.
