Re: [wpmac] Its Official
- Hi, Tina,
I've used virtual desktops for years in the 'nix world. I make a
"functional group" on a given desktop, lumping together similar tasks.
One example of how I have used them is like this:
1 desktop has a full-sized browser open
1 desktop has mail clients (2, in my case)
1 desktop has stacked terminal sessions with SSH connections to my
servers (I am a UNIX SysAdmin)
1 desktop has a WinXPP session open on the corporate Windows network
And don't tell the boss, but I've been known to put up a movie on a
separate desktop every so often...
That's one general idea anyway. When I install 10.5 on my MBP, I may
very well assign a desktop to a Parallels session, as well.
Switching between major functions thus becomes very clean and simple.
