Desktops of March Answered

We all use computers to access this website, which means were all most probably sat infront of a computer.

Many other forums do a monthly 'show off your desktop' thread, so i intend to bring the same to here.

Some of us are more than happy strolling along with the default windows xp skin, and a few icons on our desktops, others want and need to customize it as much as possible. Some of us, like myself, appreciate the extra efficiency with some of the tools available.

This is a place for people to share their desktops, and to ask questions about other peoples, so if you see someone else with a kick ass wallpaper, ask them where they got it!
I do not want any flaming. We accept ALL operating systems as equal.

So, on with the show, here is my march desktop features include -
  • Running Mac OS X Leopard
  • iStat Menus for temp, and memory usage in menu bar
  • iPulse for further activity usage in the desktop.
  • Adium, with a custom black text transparent background
  • Geektool, displaying RSS feed of recent Ibles comments, and the time
  • My own home made wallpaper, featuring a snail picture i found.

I look forward to seeing yours!

Mine is nothing fancy right now. I'm at school. Very cluttered. When I get home I'll have to change mine and post a picture. I've had the same flower as my Mac background for YEARS.

D: I had a really cool pirate theme going on with an Enigma setup, but now I'll be in-between computers for the next couple weeks. Danggit! :P All these desktops are looking great, btw, can't wait to get my netbook and see what I can do with it.

My desktop is fresh out of the box, literally, because I am posting using my new EeePC.

You planning on putting something more window orientated? Or sticking with the simplified linux?

So far, I'm happy with the OS. Not so different from windows that I can't cope. The biggest "problem" is the up-arrow is between the back-slash key and the shift key, so my reflexive way of adding a "?" often adds a slash to the line above instead. Maybe I'll find something I can't do that I need to do, and I'll think about the OS then, but, as I said, no need yet.

. You should be able to find something similar to this that will block the arrow key(s) and run under Linux.

I like it, nice and simple. I would be tempted to replace the icons of those three.. something a light blue to match.

Ubuntu Linux (Intrepid Ibex) Screen lets are the widgets on the desktop, Avant Window manager for the dock. Using the Mac4Lin transformation pack (parts of it at least) I use VistaOSX09 on my Vista partition to create a unified theme Compiz fusion enabled, drapes rotates the wallpaper every 10 minutes (ATM it's one from my banksy folder) Thats about it I think...

I'm not going to bother screenshotting and uploading, but I have WinXP on the Silver theme.
  • Multiple backgrounds that are either cool pictures I've found, or cool pictures I've taken, cycled with CoreDownload Free Wallpaper Changer
  • RocketDock, which eliminates all of my desktop icons
  • Rainmeter with the Enigma 2.0 desktop, largely customized to fit the Silver theme. It has a weather forcast display, a notes section, and a panel to display all my system stats (RAM, CPU, HDD, network, etc.)
