    Post your desktop

    Just wondering how everyone has their desktop set up. Some people like their OS environment tidy, others have trouble finding a spot to place yet another shortcut. What's yours like?

    Here's a shot of mine:

    Desktop

    I'm obsessed with keeping everything as tidy as I possibly can. Before anyone comments why I'm not using Firefox: I couldn't be bothered to find out how to secure yet another browser.

    Normally the image files and the avi file wouldn't be there. I will be moving them as soon as I have finished with them.

    I tend to keep all the files that I am using on the desktop and thn move them when I have finished using them, so normally it is just links to programmes on the desktop.

    Nice... er... fish

    Here's mine on my laptop!



    As you can see, I have boring stuff on the left side and all my creative stuff on the right hand side.

    My desktop system isn't much different, apart from all the naked ladies on it (all artitstically done, of course)

    Note the use of both Firefox and IE7, because I personally prefer IE7, but am trying to get used to FF at the moment.

    There I was clicking Steve's desktop image link, waiting to see some nice Amiga or Mac themed Windows desktop, and what did I see... it was so boring I quickly erased it from my mind! You do know you can use images as a backdrop on your desktop Steve?

    Like the dragon v85rawdeal.

    Until the other day, I had a background picture which said AmigaOS4 on it (can't remember where I got it from).

    I think you got some wallpapers from me a while ago. I think I remember uploading a bunch to the FTP or something.

    Here is my current desktop. I've been using this background for a while now. I made it from the concept art for a forthcoming Star Wars game.




    As you can see I like to keep it nearly empty. I tend to put files on there while I'm working on them, and then move them to another HD once I'm finished so the desktop is never cluttered. I hate having program icons on there too, and instead add the ones I use the most into the quick launch bar, and the rest of the ones I use regularly to the left-hand side of the start menu.

    Did you also know that the more icons you have on the desktop, the longer the system will take to load. This is because the system needs to check the links of each shortcut before continuing to load Windows.

    And here is the desktop from my server, Yuna.



    I will take a screenshot from my other systems when I get chance.

    Beautiful star wars wallpaper, Harrison

    Here is my desk as it is now, all the icons are modified with the tango shell patcher to look more gnomish...

    Clean:



    Dirty:

    I've not seen that tango shell patcher. Definitely makes Windows look for Linux like. Shame about the OSX style launchbar!

    Here is the link to the tango patcher. It works very well and manages all icons through the whole xp thing...

    For the launcher, it's not OSX style, it's the same as my lower bar in ubuntu when all is removed and transparency set to the max. I love to have the same desk on my linux and my windows partitions
