Well using the short cut keys for Desktop 1-9 is rather useless. You close mail for what every reason and there's no way to put mail back on Workspace 2, without putting it on WS 2 then moving all other windows in WS2 to WS3. WS3 windows to WS4... etc to WS8 windows to WS9.
With dynamic workspaces there's no easy way to organize yourself.
Personally I think we need an option to turn off the dynamic workspaces and make it a grid. (I think dynamic workspaces work for most users out there... it's just us few who reply on workspaces as a method of organization who are in pain... )
I suffer from this exact problem. Today I lost so much of patience with the whole flickering of screen and the related eye distraction when trying to move from one workspace to another. Earlier, with the 3x3 model, any workspace that I want to switch is just one key-press away (and with no visual distractions). I always worked from the centermost workspace and hop on to any workspace in any adjacent positions (like a big + sign)
I have added myself to the bug and switching to pekWM until this is fixed. If someone can let me know which areas to look into fixing this, I will be happy to do it myself and contribute a patch.
hey guys, i don't know if you have seen this yet, but you can disable dynamic-workspaces.
there is an extension(s) for gnome-shell, designed to provide a more gnome2-like experience. the extensions deal with various complaints quite popular on this list (icons in panel, static-workspaces,etc). so you can for sure have static workspaces, no problem.
i recommend that you have a look;http://intgat.tigress.co.uk/rmy/extensions/index.html
I think you may find these useful, i think i remember reading that you could install individual components of this, instead of everything. ie: if you only want the static-workspaces, i think you can do that,
the link above is the author's page, but i believe that an article on this is also found elsewhere.
