Guess what time it is? It’s time to share our desktop screen shots! Wohoo! Go desktop exhibitionism!
We actually did this once before, and several people jumped into the thread and pimped their awesome setups. It also turned out that most of you guys have much better looking setups than I do – mine tend to be basic and stripped down. ;) Which is ok, since it gives you a chance to shine showing off your awesome, themed desktop environment. I’m sure everyone changed their desktop wallpaper and themes since last year (I know I did) – some probably changed computers. So let’s share! I’m going to post just thumbnails below since these tings tend to be big. Tto see the full resolution images you will need to click on the thumb – which should be self explanatory I think. I’m doing this both to save some bandwidth, and also to save you some waiting while the page loads. Cause, you know – I’m on dreamhost so a static text page over here usually loads in a little under 3 minutes – but only during the off peak hours. :P
First up, my Windows desktop. As you can see, I’m running Win XP in classic mode cause the bubbly XP windows decorations kinda piss me off:
Portal love! Who’s with me? Possibly the best game evar!
Next up, the bare bones install of Ubuntu Hardy with Ratpoison on the ancient Compaq. Half the time I actually run it without X, but I figured that a screen shot of a blank tty would be kinda boring.
You have already seen this one the other day when I posted about the setup of this machine but I’m showing it here again to show off the Eva wallpaper.
Finally, here is my work laptop running Kubuntu (Gutsy):
I keep it simple with the default wallpaper because I use it at work, and sometimes at school. It doesn’t really look very professional to have giant robots, video game related stuff or half naked ladies on your wallpapers so I’m sticking with the basics. Also, I kinda like that KDE theme – simple, subtle, basic and unobtrusive. Perfect for work environments.
Now it’s your turn. Note that I’m not allowing image uploads in the comments, and the img tag is disabled because wide images totally mess up the layout here. So simply link to your image, and if you don’t have a server use imageshack, xs.to or some other free service to upload it and link to it. Let’s see who has the best looking setup around here.
