    MorphOS has always had support for Amiga-like screens. I use them daily. Maybe you should define what you really mean by "virtual desktops"?

    Yea thats definitely not what I meant. Multiple virtual desktops as the way we have them in Linux, ie Gnome shell is a good example of how it handles virtual desktops.

    Amiga/MorphOS way is the 'poor mans' virtual desktop. LOL

    Hmmm. I see workspaces on common Linux, but it is not very useful (or I didn't figure out how to use it in a productive way).

    In fact, I'm used to Amiga public screen on which selected applications can automatically be opened (which is quite convenient to create switchable thematic areas).

    Apart of an easier way to dynamically make windows jump from a screen to another (which might not be hidden in an obscure menu even if it is rarely used once public screens configured), what could be expected from virtual desktop?

    How about a bounty for draggable screens? :-)
