It's not Linux, it's your window manager. Most window managers do allow
the use of a single (well, usually a multi-key) keypress to switch
workspaces. There's always a menu option too, and then some have little
"pager" applets.

Why not have both? Here I have two 17" monitors running at 1280x1024.
With Openbox as my window manager, a flick of the mouse wheel on the
background switches between workspaces, and that's both monitors at
once. It is very nice and it takes only a little bit to get used to
it. Using multiple workspaces is a good first step, but when you
combine that with dual monitors you can really spread things out. It
all depends on your style of working, but if you find that you are
spending a lot of time shuffling windows around you will like dual monitors.
