I use virtual desktops, organised losely by task (email, remote terms, scratch
desktops for intermittant tasks, etc.). Konsole allows you to detach/reattach a
tab, meaning I can detach a tab, move it to a task desktop (along with relevant
konqueror tabs) and reattach when finished. This means that when working on a
task I can alt-tab between the useful stuff... This kinda evolved out of the
way I was organising stuff in WindowMaker, and it changes whenever I start
using the new KDE/GNOME.
I've never come across a HOWTO or similar with examples of how to effectively
organise work using virtual desktops, KDE/GNOME, screen, etc. Obviously, tabbed
applications and virtual desktops are good ways to do this, but there's a
zillion ways to go about using these, and surely there's a few ways that are
better than others - I'm happy to relearn how to organise my work if anybody's
got some good suggestions/URLs!
