As far as I can see you can use Activities just as (or better than) Virtual 
Desktops if:

 - There was an "Activity Pager" just like the VD pager.

 - The task manager had a setting "Only show tasks from the current Activity".

 - There was an indication somewhere/how on which Activity you are currently 

And most likely some more things needed. The Activities needs a few more 
development iterations before they become useful at least for me.
