For me too. I am using other, so called lighter desktops on some of my 
other systems, but those desktops that do not offer me multiple 
workspaces also severely handicap my way of working when at that 
machine. I have 10 such workspaces setup on this machine, not all in use 
but they are there for tmp jobs. Each of the 5 in instant use has a 
terminal with up to 7 tabs open at this instant each containing shells 
or logins to my other machines or to other projects I won't bore you 
with a list of.

Now I find the rpi4 I just installed, has the giddyup to run TDE or sure 
acts like it. But with several active logins to it ATM, I really only 
notice the lack of the "workspaces" when I am at its own monitor and 
console. The multiple logins from here greatly alleviate that handicap 
and put me in a comfy office chair which my back appreciates, a lot.

That rpi4 only has 2G of dram, but with a large, off its sd card swap on 
an SSD, it has yet to refuse to do anything I have asked it to do 
including building its own preempt-rt kernel, and all of LinuxCNC direct 
from a git clone of master. Currenty 20 days uptime. Thats what I bought 
it for. Other folks are now using that code as they can download it from 
my site, but I think I was first. But for now I'll thank these folks who 
maintain TDE, and do an Andy Capp and shuddup. Having apparently fixed 
kmail, I am happy. :-)
