Informal survey: multiple desktops

Although if 'multiple desktops' (whether capitalised or not) IS treated 
as a feature, then 'multiple desktops' IS singular.

If, however, one is counting multiple desktops (I have 4 on my main 
Linux box) then 'multiple desktops' ARE plural.

Of course, this could be a case of splitting hair, or, alternatively, 
splitting hairs: depending on whether one treats
'hair' as a count noun or as a mass (and, hence, non-count) noun.

And I could rabbit (or, possibly, 'hare')  on like this for ages.

But, as one grows older and one's hair recedes (or one's hairs fall 
out), this proves increasingly tiring and tiresome.

And a Happy Fag-End of May 1, the unemployed persons' holiday, to you.
