Can I set Ubuntu 11.10 to bring up the workspaces by pressing Control-Alt only instead of Control-Alt and an arrow. I would like to see what's in the workspaces before moving to a new workspace.

Unity 3d does show a preview the way you've mentioned. If you're using Unity 2d you can have a better preview, and easier switching between workspaces by pressing Super+S.

This feature is actually found in both versions of Unity, for what it is worth. – James Henstridge Nov 25 '11 at 3:17
