In both cases you have X activities, which is kind of what I'm trying to 
avoid. Additional activities suck resources and I only need four for all of my 
seven desktops (one of them I could probably scrap as I never really use it). 
No need to have seven activities guzzle up resources.

(To answer your question: it's the activities that are the resource hogs. 
Varying the amount of desktops isn't going to do a lot.)
