Making Gnome show one maximized window for each Desktop
This is quite useful when you dont have much screen estate, like on a eeePC 701 or similar. All normal windows will be maximized and have their decoration removed. Dialogs will be as normal.
For this you would need to install the package devilspie and add it to your sessions so it automaticaly starts up on login.
create a folder called .devilspie in your home folder. in this folder create a file called allbig.ds (or what ever you like .ds). And add the following code to it:
(begin (if (is "_NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_NORMAL" (window_property "_NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE")) (begin (undecorate) (maximize) )))
