okay, define "desktop."

i was under the impression that i already _had_ a desktop... many of
them, in fact, thanks to windowmaker's ability to switch desktops by
pressing alt-functionkey (the way i configured it).

what additional features are you talking about, that must be added?

disagree. talk about clutter; my gnome menu is gonna look _way_ too busy
if that gets implemented. we already have application icons to the left
and submenu arrow indicators to the right. also, checkboxes would be
meaningless without some sort of text explaining what we're checking.
