Just tried that and it's pretty great! :p Too bad the icon has to be in the dock for it to work. :( This HAS to make it in 10.5!

Yeah, it was fun for about the first 5 times, but then it just got annoying. I'll bet the bank that Apple is working on integrating this into Leapord, though! :p

Multiple docks without having to relaunch Finder every single time! Maybe one on the right and one on the left, or one top and one bottom. Or maybe just a hotkey for each dock.

Multiple desktops linux style would be nice,

http://www.cs.sfu.ca/graphics/linux-kde/desktop11.jpg

If you have a look at the middle of the dock (bottom) there are the numbers 1,2,3 and 4 these each represent an individual desktop...This would work for say one desktop for work and one for play etc....Very Useful,

YUCK!

PATOOOOOEEEEYYY!


What is wrong with "User Switching" if you need separate work/play environments?

I hope the 3D revolving desktop stops spinning every once in a while so people can get their work done.

You all obviously haven't used various desktops in a linux enviroment to see how useful they are....therefore please don't slag off a concept you don't understand.

They will be featured in Leopard I am certain, probably in the 3D revolving variety which will be extremely cool,

SHadoW

"Other" just saw your post to that program,very cool I am going to give it a try, thanks for that.

I agree with Snake here. Multiple desktops are a great feature. And yes, KDE is butt-ugly, but I don't think that Shadow was suggesting that Apple should copy its style too!

Orlando Furioso

Shadow,
Guilty as charged. I have not used Linux, but think I have a good idea of what you are suggesting. I am just not a fan of separate work-spaces/environments implemented via multiple desktop instances. Why can't the same thing be achieved by having, I don't know, customizable presets that are easily accessible. With each preset, users can configure their working environment to compliment/tune their system to the tasks they plan to tackle. Simple things like system performance-level settings, folder visibility, finder-window view modes, dock items, etc can be pre-configured and changed with a simple click/selection.

If apple can do multiple desktops as well as they do one, single desktop, then i think it would be an awesome addition...

That'd be very nice. Apple should have left this feature in the first place with 10.1.

Great idea, shadowmoses. I've been using Desktop Manager for a few months and really like it :).

Multiple desktops is something I really miss after switching from Windoze/Linux to pure Mac. Very useful feature when you are doing multiple things such as browsing the web, working on a word document, putting together a slide show, etc and you can't afford dual monitors.

Besides, dual monitors only gives you two desktops - virtual desktops like these are unlimited. My SuSE machine ran 8 on regular occasions, mind you that was before I had expose.

3D revolving desktop
Hehe, I was actually thinking about something like that recently after staring at the fast user switching effect over and over. It would be very neat for the desktop to rotate over to side another side if you put your mouse off the screen for an extended desktop on a small monitor.:p

If you want to utilize something like that now, I use a program called You Control Desktops and its exactly what you say....an extended desktop. Check it out, its pretty cool:

I agree in part but I don't think (and I certainly hope they don't) Apple would make Finder so complicated, especially in terms of the GUI. I think some of the features will carry over though.

While I think multiple desktops have their place, I think it works against what Apple's going for with having everything right under your fingers when you need it. Exposé and the dock help make sure that everything is only one or two levels removed from the user, whereas multiple desktops require you to hunt around for what you want, even if it's more virtual space.

Think about how cool it would be though, to use Expose to access your virtual desktops. I mean, you hit a button or move the mouse to a corner now to "expose" all your windows, what if another button revealed however many virtual desktops you had open. I'm not a fan of the virtual desktop idea overall, but that could get me interested.

Dunno. I think it would just be another thing you had to keep track of. Open windows, open application, open desktops. It's a whole new cognitive layer that you need to be in control of.

The cool thing about Linux style multiple desktops is the ability to drag things from one desktop to another. At least it has come in handy to me.

I messed around with pathfinder for a little while and found it a bit too complicated for my liking. I personally don't have a need for that kind of file organisation, though I'm sure it's useful to some.
