While we are on this topic, I wanted to report that I have had some good experiences with Hyperspaces (non-free). It gives you a variety of ways to switch spaces and allows you to name the spaces and customize them in other ways. Still, the underlying spaces architecture remains, so while it does make some things easier, there are still annoyances and confusion.

I don't remember having any of these problems on *nix multiple desktop interfaces. Maybe there you had distinct instances of each application?

It took me a long time to figure that out and drove me crazy for a while.
