    I use 7, sometimes 8. I always use the first for Opera, the rest just depend on what I'm doing. I reaaly use VDs more like the taskbar, which I don't use. Right now my setup is, in order:

    I use 4, because that's the default. I don't tend to have any long-lasting intentions of use for each one, though some sessions I'll have decided on what each one'll do.

    Despite that, I still like being able to see everything in the task bar, so it frees up no space there...

    Ive just upped from four to six. What's in each one depends on what I'm doing, but usually I have one with Firefox, xChat and gaim running, and in another I have xmms, and in another qtorrent

    Virtual Desktops

    Three usually. One with games and fun stuff, one with email and browser, and one with a file browser and a text editor open for working on web pages.

    I use the regular 4 desktops:
    1) 1-3 (or more) terminals for C programming + firefox for testing/google searches/whatever
    2) 1 terminal for yum updates, 1 if I need to 'man' anything
    3) unused most of the time
    4) xmms

    I use one, because I have 1600x1200, I have 5 aterms running and firefox in a 1024x768 sized window. (I have no need for any more workspaces because they are the only programs I use all the time)
