I think you're seeing this backwards. Users shouldn't have to base their 
desktop usage on a basis of learning every application individually. 
Desktops should behave consistently. When I'm running desktops X - all 
applications bahave in Y specified way. 
Usage should never be based on: I'm running desktop X, application A 
behaves in Y way, application B behaves in Z way, application C behaves 
in W way... metaphor. This is exactly what we want to avoid. Desktops 
may behave differently (I'm not saying whether that's good or bad) but  
applications running on a desktop should _always_ behave in a well 
specified and consistant manner.
