I would forget where what is for sure with 16 desktops.
I have usually no more then 1 window open, sometimes 3, as soon as i'm done with it i minimize it to the taskbar.
I hate clutter.
Only when i'm editing photo's i turn on the second monitor.
To each its own i gues.

But it is actively maintained under Debian, which also supplies a 64 bit
So one can always download the Debian source code package and compile
the 64 bit version from that for openSUSE or other distributions.

I hate clutter as well. For that reason I use different desktops and
monitors, With one desktop you will have clutter when you have 3 windows
open. One is over the other and mayem ensues.
With different desktops youhave only those things that belong together.

You could also say that I can activate any group of programs in one go,
instead of clicking of activating them seperately. e.g. slrn is next to

firefox, so I can read the artcle.
Now say I would be working on a website. One screen is to look at and do
a refresh. The other screen has 3 terminals next to each other. One so I
can look at code elsewhere, the other two to edit code.
Of those 16 desktops, there are only about 5 that I activaly switch
between. And it is nice not to need launch a program, because it is

100EUR less or more for the XP version? If more, why pay for it? If
less, I can understand.
So now you have one with Ubuntu pre-installed. You could install it
