Virtual Desktops. Why?

Why would I want to use a virtual desktop? A lot of people swear by them, but I haven't been able to see the advantages.
I do mostly graphic/video work. Would I see a benefit, and if yes, what would it be?

I used virtual desktops when I was using Linux as a desktop for development use. I'd place sets of apps in each Desktop, so that basically I could hide/show a set of windows with one click.
However, Expose and Tabbed applications make the feature moot in my opinion. So does having a decent size screen.
I want tabs to be a system-wide, official interface element. This would provide standard features, like rearranging tabs or tearing a tab off to spawn a new window. Or drag a window to a tab bar to have it dock to that window as a new tab. Things like that. Also, if you hover over a tab, it should snap forward.
As far as apps go, I just want tabs added to iChat and Terminal. I'd still use multiple windows as I do now, but I could group a few together to reduce window clutter.
