KDE4 Activities are misunderstood, which is unfortunate because they are powerful, fast tools for organizing complex workflows. So what's the point, who needs them, and how do you use them?
KDE4's Activities provides another method to arbitrarily group widgets and documents. In its early incarnations it didn't support documents, but only widgets and desktop tweaks, like different wallpapers. Since KDE 4.6 you can also populate an activity with documents and applications. It's a feast of configuration riches that can happily eat up days of your life without ever having to touch actual work. It may even better suit your workflow and make you more efficient.
