My fiance (an electrical engineer, so someone who is technical in nature) has
always found virtual desktops to be inconvenent and never used them.
Panoramic desktop on the otherhand she jumped right into. There where some
complaints about the update speed, but she is on a slower machine.
For me after 5+ years of using the pager it took me a little longer to get
into it. After I got use to it I found it to be very useful. I still have
problems with active boarders, but i think thats a prefs thing.
Still working on it. The pager I can say is VERY usable, but I am still
trying to rethink the size issue. I have been watching jess too. So far so
The only problem with this that I have seen so far, is that window redraw is
very slow. While not your problem this agrivates a QT/KDE issue.
