Unity does not have 4 launchers so you can not have different launchers for different viewports (yes I used viewports, not workspaces).

Unity Workspaces Switcher uses Compiz version of viewports so basically you have a launcher that activates a split screen based on the vertical and horizontal amount of viewports. This is not the same as workspaces in Gnome 2. This is actually 1 workspace with 1,2,4 or more viewports.

... I think Unity 5.2 and the multi-monitor support may have launchers per workspace/monitor? (ubuntumanual.org/posts/591/…) –  fossfreedom Feb 3 '12 at 10:25
That's more likely to be the same icons in a launcher on all monitors. If (when?) I find new info on this I'll update it :+ –  Rinzwind Feb 3 '12 at 11:40
