    What I am after is having a different desktop folder for two different spaces (i.e. for all the icons on the desktop).
    This can't be done using generic means/system prefs, so I'm wondering if it is at all possible and if it is, how could it be done. :confused:
    This is the ONLY reason I'm not using spaces at the moment. :(

    Hope this can be done... If not, I hope Apple releases something like it in the next OS ;) (I know they won't...)

    Short answer, no. But there is another approach.

    The (slightly) longer answer can be a different dock for each space (there's an app just for that). Then you can just add new files/folders to each dock you choose to have.

    Hope that helps

    Thanks :)

    Yeah, I was mainly looking at having the other desktop, rather than a rather large and messy stack (in the dock) in one space...

    Thanks for the help though...:D
