Another odd behaviour of my two Desktops (except the fact that I cant find the setting for adding four Desktops) is that i have the same icons on both Desktops though different programs opened on them. My point is: i USE my desktop for organising and displaying information (not just for handling windows) and therefor i don't want the same icons appearing twice.

Would it not be better if there were a possibility to select if Desktops should have the same icons (in my case mostly text files) on all Desktops or if individual settings should apply for all or some Desktops?

Having different windows opened helps me in being more productive... different icons and content on the Desktops would achieve even greater productivity in my case.
