This means that every time the computer is restarted you have to spend time arranging your desktop working environment... I have not found any utility to do this for me either. Quite annoying, particularly since I remember that even OS/2 saved the desktop perfectly upon shutdown. Does Mate 1.20 do better in this regards?
