I've been using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS for about 5 months now and I'm trying to find a program that can allow me to use a hotkey to open several applications at once, such as Thunderbird, Firefox, etc. and have them placed on specifed desktops that I move them on and it can remember what desktop I had them set to. Are there any applications like this?

For compiz set the workspace for an app with...
ccsm > place windows > fixed placement
224907 224906

For the shortcut key just create a bash script something like...

firefox &

Then add a keyboard shortcut pointing to the script.

You could also create a launcher for the script by adding it to alacarte (main menu)
