Is this Gnome3? Gnome3's workspaces are dynamic, so you start with two
(one on top of the other) and when you put something in the bottom
one, it spawns a new one below it for you. When you empty one in the
middle, it removed it for you. 

Again, in Gnome 3 you can view the workspaces by hitting the left
windows key, where they appear on the right, or cycle through them by
doing ctrl-alt-up to go up and ctrl-alt-down to go down. 

The Gnome 2 fallback (which only exists in Natty) should behave exactly
as the old Gnome desktops did, but the workspaces are arranged in a 2x2
square, rather than a single row of four.

What did you install? Which version of Ubuntu is this?
