#GNOME 3.4.2 is my preferred interface to #GNU/ #Linux #Debian, #Fedora, & #OpenSuSE, (among other) distributions. When there are 2 or more applications executing, selecting one application and simultaneously pressing CRL + ALT + Shift AND the arrow (pointing down) automagically creates another desktop view for the application.

Subsequently, to change application focus to work and/or maneuver between each of desktop views, simultaneously press CTRL + ALT and press the UP/DOWN arrow.
