It all depends on what I'm working on, but when I'm handling tasks for my clients I usually have it set up as follows: 1) Firefox and Tabs 2) VirtualBox XP Machine 3) Files and Folders, document viewing 4) GIMP, Inkscape, graphics editing. Otherwise I base it on tasks that I'm working on, I've found it easier to use CTRL-ALT-Arrow than ALT-TAB so that I think of things in groups rather than individual applications, and it really comes in handy when you have something like an update that needs to run but don't want to watch it.
I currently run the Netbook edition of Ubuntu on my desktop and laptop, although I started logging into the normal gnome interface because I had a few issues with Unity and I love the little "favicon" view of the workspace switcher. It's really helped me get used to what groups are where. I've just recently upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04 and the new Unity interface and there has been much improvement, but it seems to be a lot harder to keep track of everything without seeing the panel applet.
