KDE3.5: easy to move a window from one desktop to another using top-left corner window menu

Uses the context menu for the top-left corner of a Window, and shows named desktops clearly, and what is on them already. It's much faster than dragging with the Mac OS X Spaces (after pressing F8 and making all windows smaller, without even a nice text listing or named Spaces), which drives me craz(ier), because one has to remember what each Space is or was for.

KDE3.5: moving window from one desktop to another using KPager mini-app view

It's no "secret" that Netbeans is a great IDE, so let's move it from the secret desktop to the work desktop, this time by using the context menu over the representation of a window as a mini-window in the KDE mini KPager app. One can also move ("gather") windows that are not in the current desktop into the current one, or to any other ! I haven't found a way to do that in Mac OS X Leopard.

'In KDE it is much easier: one can easily assign (by selecting a _named_ space from a button on the window bar) a given window to any space (or to all as "sticky", which you do have in Spaces), and many windows from 1 application can be allocated to different spaces.'

And it is indeed easier. When I am working within a window, I don't want to have to leave that window to assign it to something. I have not yet found a way in Spaces to simply assign it to a Space without any visual change on the screen I am working on. In KDE all I have to do is go to the top left corner of the window, click, and then assign it to a selected desktop space from a drop-down list. Much easier than having to go to Spaces (which shrinks the display to show the Spaces) and then drag etc.
