they are orthogonal concepts and i don't think we should at this time get too 
worked up about them. 

for those who don't use virtual desktops now -> not an issue
for those who don't use activities -> not an issue
for those who use both happily -> not an issue

people who know virtual desktops but who are learning and using activities are 
the only ones really affected, and i think it's likely to be a "growing pains" 
issue as they adjust. it may just as well work itself out naturally.

we don't know what their resulting work flows will be yet. that would be a 
matter for a field study or we can just wait and see. if/when we do know what 
the resulting work flow typically is for a virtual desktop and activities 
user, we can then take this topic up if we wish to.

but imho right now it's "not an issue" :)
