organising workspaces pages are a crime nowadays.

why not have the option to set a workspace page as a default workspace page to be opened at startup?

this would avoid that I have to move my favourite databases at a moment to the first workspace page

I suspect this won't get done as the Workspace is only tolerated for us old school Notes users. But it's a great idea.

Well, at lot of people in IBM still use it, and there was active talk of updating it for 8.0, but time interfered, so there is a chance.

Not sure I understand, but I probably agree. First, managing the workspace is difficult. For example, dragging an icon from one tab to another does not allow dropping into a specific place. You just drop it on the tab and then go hunt for it on the other tab. If you mean you want to set your workspace as the home page, you can already do that, though they messed it up between version 7 and version 8 so it isn't as simple.

Regarding how widely used the Workspace is, I have tried deploying various other welcome pages, but in the end always return to the Workspace because it is the only page that 1. Doesn't open any databases (which generate helpdesk calls and other pains when it can't open for whatever reason) and 2. Is the only page that the helpdesk can reliably talk a user through for support issues. Also, it is the only place I can go to view the properties of a database without opening the database.

I think administrators, developers and support people find the workspace invaluable and probably would never give it up. My belief why the workspace shouldn't be used for all users is that it is stored in the desktop6.ndk file. With the introduction of roaming there was a push to put client desktop settings ie bookmarks choices into a notes db which is the bookmarks.nsf as this replicates which is the foundational requirement for roaming. The desktop6.ndk file does not replicate and is cumbersome to manage.

I do think workspace's time is limited... I'm getting tired of using (well mostly replica management part. However I don't see how IBM can improve on it.
