Another interesting use of session saving and tag-associated
layouts is on multi-user machines. On such a system I will have
to log-off sometime. And after log-on I might either want to see
the programs I had open in my last session or just have the same
layouts predefined without the programs open yet. (I'd prefer
the last one, as it makes log-on faster and I'll start programs
when I need them only - nowadays software is too large to have
many of them open in the background just waiting to be used.)
I have to admit this goes into a direction similar to wmi, but
in fact there are tasks, which stay the same for long times and
there fixed layouts could be very useful (while the less static
tasks should be handled dynamically, of course).
