I guess it’s that time of year again. Lets compare our desktop wallpapers once again. Just remember that your wallpaper, the icons on your desktop and the apps running in your system tray tell a story about you. So keep in mind that there will be at least one comment in this thread in which someone will say “OMG, I can’t believe you are using XYZ! XYZ sucks!” Or maybe not. Conversations here tend to be way above the level I usually expect from the rest of the internet.
Anyways, here is my XP box:
And here is my Kubuntu setup I use at work:
It’s boring and plain because I sometimes hook this machine up to a projector and displaying a flashy wallpaper at a business meeting is usually not a good idea.
This will probably be a little bit disappointing, but I currently don’t have a junker laptop I mess around with by installing obscure linux distros. All the ones I used in the past fell apart and I just didn’t feel like investing money in repairing them. So no third screenshot this time.
Also, yes – I always put the Windows task bar on top of the screen. That’s where it belongs, no? In linux boxes I will often leave it on the bottom because the virtual desktop pager tends to be easier to get at in that position.
Now it’s your turn. Take a screenshot of your desktop, upload it somewhere (for example flickr, imgur.com, etc..) and post a link in the comments. Note that my spam filter is a bit touchy and it totally hates link spam – so if you have more than 3 or 4 URL’s in your post, it may block you.
