| During a recent podcast appearance with Senors Asay, Rosenberg, and Vance,
| Canonical’s Mark Shuttleworth discussed the 3D desktop capabilities offered
| in the latest iteration of Ubuntu, Gutsy Gibbon. Given that I’ve been using
| Gutsy for a few months, and using said 3D functionality off and on I had a
| special interest in his comments. Among other things, he expressed his hope
| that the various communities that provide and consume the functionality would
| seek ways to apply the new capabilities to the task of making the user more
| productive.

| Problem is, I spread my applications across all 4 desktops, so
| that things feel uncluttered when I'm working on an application.
| However, when you want to keep an eye on several applications at
| a time, it's impossible - except, if you have beryl. What I do
| is set one of the corners of my desktop to activate the scale
| plugin to show all windows from all desktops (see here for a
| more detailed explanation). I also make sure that it shows
| minimised windows.
