I believe XP can do this as well. I used XP at my cousin's house in April last
year and I saw this was possible (very memory consuming though and nothing
like CTRL+ALT-F[1..7]). You could achieve the functionality above with some
addons as well, but I'm not sure how they affect, performance, reliability,
and installation time.

- KDE restores sessions after you log off (including finer bits like locations
in file managers and open files/tabs)

- KDE enabled you to stick an application so that it appears in all virtual

- If you wish to issue a command (say... minimise) to a group of similar
applications, that's trivial.

- If I want KNode to always open (and remain) in desktop 8, I can add a rule.
This obviates the need to move windows around, which saves time.

There are many more examples...
