I really like the panorama feature of Firefox 4 so i thought it would be also nice to use it as a workspace manager for Linux/Ubuntu.

Yeah, the realization that browsers where reinventing window manager occurred around the advent of tabbed browsing as well, it's a rather sad development. If you have a competent window manager like this then you don't need tabs!

Have you considered installing windows and linux side by side? You could keep XP for whatever reason you already have it and get the benefits of linux on the side.

Great combination of good ideas. I also like the ability to quickly and easily name/rename work spaces and than delete them when I'm finished to help keep me organized.

Exactly also even if its not visible in the screenshot you have the option to save a space to work on it later. think like suspending but only a workspace with its apps:)
awesome idea, just what linux is missing.

is like a combination of expo and kde type "activities".

creating it is not that hard either.

we already have "user sessions", so each "workspace" is like a different user session, except in the mock-up you have a total/expo type view.

The best thing is what you mentioned: "option to save a space to work on it later."

i think you should suggest this to the kde people too. Am sure they would love having something like this for their activities, since the hard stuff is already done.

Awesome! I love the idea. Is not the same idea behind workspaces, but implemented in a different way? I mean, every "Panorama" is holding a group of applications, but when those group are separate workspaces right? Anyway, I love how it look like...

Yes - the difference is that there is an overview of all "workspaces" (on one screen), which gnome/metacity/compiz/... does not have at the moment.
