while thinking about how to explain the tagging mechanism, I had the
idea to better use the term "view" instead of "workspace".

In my opinion it is easy to imagine a view as being a pure virtual and
dynamic thing. I think the term "workspace" is strongly connected to
the static workspace of old-style window managers.

What do native english speakers think about that? Should we better use
"view" or "workspace"?

Microsoft is simply one example of a proprietary software developer, a
software developer that tries to subjugate users to keep them divided
and helpless. -- Richard M. Stallman
