I am trying to find out which GUI/Desktop layout is best for cluttered workflow. We have panels, docks, compiz/kwin, plasmoids and screenlets... there are so many options out there its difficult to fin which selection of options suits a heavy workload layout best.
Im currently opting for a single panel with taskbar. Window grouping is enabled and Expo and Scale (in KDE) enabled in the desktop corners.
Im using 4 workspaces at the time. One of them, for office stuff is usually cluttered with 5 or more PDF docs, 2 or more spreadsheets and a file browser window. I sometimes find the task manager rather inefficient for this. Being alt+tab the best opcion for navigating through windows...
What are your options on this?
