Since you don't use Gnome, as I recall, I don't really care about your opinion on this matter.

To your specific example, I don't know why you'd have a task that requires 20 windows. However, for the sake of understanding, you'd still have those 20 windows to sift through on your virtual desktops.
If your issue is the alt-tab presentation, there are a few extensions that provide different ways of presenting the windows (some limit what is shown on a desktop basis).
Don't conflate spatial memory with photographic memory. Optimizing a system for the later group would be akin to optimizing a general curriculum based on the abilities of those in the top .001% of intelligence.
