he says 10 desktops, not tabs.
usually I open quite a few xterms as well, e.g. one for running
program (and do msic interactive stuff), few for editing sources (those
might be gvim windows instead), one for watching output from the program
(tail -f logfile), one or two for manpages or other docs etc... and of
course, the same thing often happens on multiple desktops (main program,
one or two small programs to try something out etc.)
