Of course I've never used multiple virtual desktops either (if it ain't pretty much in my face, I forget it's there.) But it sure seems like they've gone to a lot of trouble to develop something that hardly anybody seems to understand (as far as I can tell) and so I assume isn't being used much.
I'm with you here. I really tried to understand Activities. I read a few articles about it and kind of figured out the point in them. In theory
it makes sense but I didn't find the sense in practice. I know some people like them but is it worth the effort (development-wise)? Don't know, KDE project certainly thinks so.

Yup, KDE wasn't that bad after all, obviously after disabling akonadi/nepomuk/strigi/virtuoso/soprano/younameit first. But yes, luckily we have choices. Still.
