multiple desktops

GNU/Linux GUIs usually offer the user several desktops to work on simultaneously. At first sight, this seems like a good idea: When you have finished cluttering up the first, simply switch to the next one. I whish it was that easy in my room. But then not only space multiplies. The number of distractions do the same. Wonder what they’re talking about in the chat right now. Maybe I should look up something on the internet. Oh, and this configuration detail on Desktop 4 has been getting on my nerves for weeks. This is how I spent the day. It’s a miracle that I got anything done at all. But then, cluttering four different desks is no mean feat in itself.
