Boost Productivity with Workspaces

| Most often its not the case that you have
| only one application open at a particular
| time on your computer. With hardware
| becoming cheaper & faster, multi-tasking
| has become a norm. Its a common sight today
| to have a media-player, web browser, chat
| client & an image editor all running in
| realtime on one desktop. Though the
| computers can handle such multi-tasking the
| user productivity most often than not
| gets crippled. Blame it on to the cluttered
| desktop for the decrease in productivity.
| Half of the user time is wasted in
| finding the right application window.
| Grouping similar windows is handy but still
| not too much either. However, most of the
| user are unaware of the feature called
| orkspacesin Linux Desktop Environments.
| Almost all desktop environment offer this
| feature enabled by default. It is set to 2
| or 4 workspaces by default but can be
| altered to provide many more.
