Display the current desktop name on your desktop, allowing you to quickly
rename it (double-click). This is aimed at users with a lot of virtual
desktops working on a many projects at the same time, needing a faster way to
organize their workspaces.
- The pager module doesn't show the name of the current desktop.
- When all your desktops look the same from the pager, the pager is
useless, keyboard shortcuts are faster.
- Renaming a desktop at the moment takes between 5 and 10 clicks and
mouse movements. It's good but it only encourages you to name your
desktops after a broad category (browser, music, etc..)
- I want to experiment tagging my desktops for each project, version or
branch I work on, I need context, fast. This seems necessary when
working on dozens of project in one given day.
