Activity Pager: The Light at the End of Plasma 5.5's Tunnel?

Image taken from notmart.org
I learned here that Plasma 5.5 will come with a tiny plasmoid called Activity Pager.  It is designed to somehow imitate the pager for virtual desktops, but using Plasma's activities instead.

Could this be the answer for all KDE users who, like me, got discouraged by the lack of virtual desktop customization in the new version of KDE? 

I don't really know.  No matter what KDE developers say, activities and virtual desktops are not fully equivalent.  I've found activities way too complex for the functions I used -- and liked -- of virtual desktops. 

At least Activity Pager might be a way to minimize the friction of Plasma's lack of features.

  1. if they implement it, it will be an interesting compromise between the activities and the virtual desktops... sort of.

    1. To me it will mean a way to correct the deal breaker that Plasma 5 brought to virtual desktops.
