Usually all the work spaces have the same icons, settings, and background, and if you make a change to one, it effects all of them. Is there a way to change this so that each work space's settings is independent of the others?

Hope I am understanding your question correctly. Your desktop is handled by nautilus, so all workspaces will look alike. You are able to change the wallpaper of each workspace by letting Compiz handle your desktop, but then you cover your desktop icons and files. You can still access them through Places > Desktop, but they will not show on your "compiz wallpaper".

Wow, there's really know way to put different icons on different work spaces? That sux, I'll have to do some tinkering to see if I can't find a way around it.

Why don't you go to the gnome web site and put in a request for that feature? While you're at it you could go to the KDE and XFCE web sites and do the same thing for their desktops. It might not be possible, of course, or you may be in such a small minority that it'll never get implemented.
