I installed and ran the latest Opensuse Tumbleweed just for the sake of testing Gnome 40. This linux distro had been installed in VMware Workstion 16, the latest version.
My first comment is the dispersion of Gnome settings over a wide array of things like Tweaks, Extensions, Taskbars, Applets, and the main Settings. They all should be aggregated into a single “Settings”.
The reason for this post is that after allowing icons in the desktop, every time I added program icons to workspace 1 it appeared duplicated in workspace 2. If I then delete the program icon in workspace 1, the same happened in workspace 2.
What is the point of having more than one workspace if they are all the same? Everything I do in one of them, it is cloned in all the other workspaces. I may have done something wrong or incomplete to allow different workspaces behavior, but this should be intuitive and as the default behavior.
