Why do apps always start in desktop 1?

Why do apps always start in desktop 1?? What's the point of multiple desktops if they all default to desktop 1 then you need to move it.

I love the old spaces format in leopard / snowleopard, jump to a new screen and open the apps you need for whatever you are doing.

And to make it worse, the assign to this desktop is useless. It moves the view to that desktop and then opens the app in desktop 1.

You can't easily move apps between desktops, not like space of grab a window and cmd + arrow to zip through them.

I've searched around and can see no easy answer, is it a bug? or am I missing something?

That's not the behavior I see. Unless the app is already pinned to a particular desktop, it always opens in the desktop I am in. When I pin it, it always opens where I pin it.

And say you don't pin it as I want the app to open in whatever desktop I am currently working - not desktop 1. Rather than go hunting to find where the app has gone.
