Informal survey: multiple desktops

On Win 10 the taskbar icons get scrambled when switching between desktops,
RDT's are unexpectedly focused causing the "switch desktop" key combo to
stop working. The LC tool pallet and a plug-in in pallet mode both appear on
all desktops. I'm not keen on multiple desktops at this point. I've been
using a multiple VMs instead.

Now that Windows, Mac, and Linux all offer multiple desktop, I'm
curious: do you folks use them?

FWIW here's how I often work: I tend to open my email client and web browser
in workspace 1, then LC on workspace 2.  Spaces 3 and 4 tend to get used ad
hoc when there's something I need to focus on, like having another instance
of LC, or a graphics tool, etc.  This is on Ubuntu, though lately I've
started using multiple desktops on Windows as well.

I would be interested in learning how you folks use your desktops, and which
OS you're on.
