Here's a completely original idea: post your desktop!

If it doesn't fit elsewhere, it should go here

Every forum needs one of these, right?

This is my Linux desktop. My Windows desktop is really boring; it's basically default.

without Stardock Fences, my desktop would be full of EVERYTHING. It's just so easy to save stuff to the desktop.

It's a bit plain -- I never use my desktop to hold things. And, typically, chrome is on the left screen, not the right. Enjoy my schedule, future stalkers.

"crap I don't use" I have this kind of folder.. you don't use the stuff inside, but if you get rid of it, you instantly need it.

People around here expect a sarcastic approach to everything. wtf ? I read everything written here with the same plain voice in my head. How do you expect to send a sarcastic message when your desktop is neatly divided between icons on the left and a nice squarish minecraft picture in the middle. Fuck you ! I hope you die in pain because you made me look bad. You're an evil person and we should ban those who think sarcasm is a good thing (this is the internet, it's not a chat room for heaven's sake)

If that's meant to be sarcasm, you're doing it wrong.
If not, you're doing it wrong.

don't, I was just kidding (maybe a bit too directly :S). rule no. 1 of the internet : be as ironic as you want, who gives a shit. there's a difference between trolls and programmers - the latter need explicit markup language to differenciate anything. bbcode is for talking to computers, not humans.

Well I did switch themes...

Gnome 3 is still more interesting than vanilla Windows, though.

I don't want to say anything stupid but I think tesselode runs fedora with gnome 3 an/or the new shell thingie or whatever the hype is nowadays
I run Ubuntu 10.10 with gnome 2 with elegant gnome theme (tweaked a bit) (notice the system monitor at the top which I am completely addicted to)

I was actually running Ubuntu 11.04 in that screenshot. Also, I think Ubuntu 10.10 is the best version of Ubuntu so far, but it's old, so whatever.

yeah, I started with 10.10, and I then upgraded to 11.04, which I didn't enjoy that much (not as customizable, at least at the time) and after a while it stopped booting so (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ back to 10.10 :D
I guess one of these days I'll upgrade to 11.04 or 11.11 and use mate or something

Wow, I almost forgot what was in my Sburb file.

Seems like it's just some of my file icons. The Virtual Sylladex is also that.

And as tempting as it is to just exactly copy a character's desktop, I prefer top have it nice and neat. Though I might make a Delirious Biznasty shortcut. Perhaps.
