    My rather boring Gentoo desktop(s) (All the same boring image).

    I need to get used to this multiple desktop thing and get a few nice wallpapers :D

    And, my windows desktop still looks like this (I have tweaked coolmon a bit, but not too noticable):

    heres my desktop
    [​IMG]
    click for bigger image
    its an edited version of a good picture of mine from when i was skiing last year, namely this one:
    [​IMG]
    click here for bigger
    The run you can see on the mountain ( the wide open thing on the left ) is a black run( hardest ), we took the picture thinking 'hey that looks hard!!' but little did we know at the end of the day we'd be skiing down it!!
    it was riddled with moguls, that looked like this:
    moguls and slope
    this picture does not give jsutice to the size of them so heres another picture with my big bro in it: ( hes 6'3 and hes not bigger than me now lol ):
    brother and moguls
    and yes, those are the tops of the trees!!

    lol, i usually have about 18 tray progs running. i don't think what PaulW has running is excessive. Anyway, my mainrig monitors were blank grey screens for about a month. clean workspace can be a godsend when you've got stuff you really should be getting on with and concentrating on ;)

    btw penski, you could probably use tweakUI to get rid of/change the shortcut arrows to make it even more simplistic.

    nice desktop tho :thumb:

    fear the blinding whiteness more like... :)

    But simple is the way to go. i like simple mid-to-dark landscape shots so it doesn't feel cluttered but there's some depth. i hate looking at a wall. Plus bright stuff kills my lappy screen.

    The only time I ever look at my desktop is when the PC boots or when I'm taking a screencap of it...

    ...so the details aren't that important.

    I'm with you on the simple/clean factor for PC desktops spikey :) Although I sometimes allow myself 'Active Desktop' to hide my icons (when I've let a whole bunch of desktop tempness get the better of me) to keep things looking clean, even if having Active Desktop gives a nice performance hit.

    mac = teh win.

    I've got a 12" PowerBook - but I must say I'm pretty taken by the new 12" iBooks - I'm lead to belive that they're more robust than my trusty PowerBook, harddrive mounted in squdgey rubber for impact resistence + more shock absorbing construction materials in general. The architectural difference is being erroded too. But PowerBooks are deffo the way to go for 15" and above, in my wee opinion :)
