Workspaces can be thought of as virtual screens or desktops which can be used to manage your open programs easily by grouping them together. Each workspace has same panels, menus etc. It’s just that they are separated from each other so that user can segregate his/her work.
For example, I personally keep all my work related windows in one workspace, all messengers, e-mail clients etc. in other and any system backup or upgrade related windows in a separate workspace. In this article, we will discuss how to enable and use workspaces in Ubuntu 13.04.
