Agree completely. This is the setup that I have been using for a few
years now. I find it annoying that "multiple profiles" is practically
hidden functionality these days. I found setting it up on both windows
and linux to require some careful reading and playing around to make
work the first time.

I actually have used it to good effect for several things. I have about
3-4 different profiles that I actively use. I can easily tell the
difference between them by choosing a different theme for each one.
Different themes is definitely highly recommended.
