Maybe has not the same degree of configuration, but virtualDesktops from MicrosoftToys does exist from ages. It enables up-to 4 desktops on the same screen. Not powerfull as the Linux Xorg multi-desktops, but good enough.
Thanks for adding your comment with this article.
I would be thankful if you add some more point in favour of Linux Xorg multi desktops.
Have a great day ahead!
