I'm certain. i3 workspaces are an implementation of "virtual desktop" [1], as
Wikipedia calls it. I'm quite sure that MATE has its own implementation, but it
is likely very different from i3's. On the other hand, ttys are "virtual
consoles" [2], which is similar concept, but on lower level. The general rule is
that one X server cannot span multiple ttys.
