Ok, there have been a few cool desktops published in mags recently. Time for everyone to show off their desktops (Ok, if you run a server edition without graphical desktop, you are excused from participating! Laughing )

I love the greyscale thing. Very swish. My wallpaper is written on it! Legacy of Kain - Defiance (from the game). I'm using standard Gnome on Ubuntu 9.04 with compiz enabled.

Work laptop is running Ubuntu Studio with KDE4, but is running the standard kernel, so I might have well installed plain ubuntu Rolling Eyes

I looked into it ... But, when the Post Office told me how much it would cost in P&P, I decided not to after all

Sorry Sad

Hmm, I often wonder what the point is in having one of those big desktop clocks, especially when there's another in the panel at the top. I first noticed them when Vista came out and now everyone seems to want one. Why?

It suits non-linear/visual thinkers better

Despite having had a clock on screen for decades, I still tend to look at the clock on the wall.

Then why not remove the clock applet from the panel? I've yet to see a desktop where anyone has done that.

Because most people are too lazy to go to those lengths, when they can get the same effect by adding the clock and ignoring the panel

The clock's just there as a bit of additional eye-candy for the screen shot, as is the Kaffeine window.

The wallpaper is...... Actually, as LoL likes puzzles, what is it a picture of?

Hmmmm ... Well, either it's not what it seems, or ... fiendishly ... it's exactly what it seems, no more no less - A ravine-like environment, with fern/palm-like tree(s), vines/creepers, etc.

I'm completely stumped right now and, without any clues, would have to hazard that it might be the base for some sort of bonsai, as my first guess - It looks just a bit too obviously a vegetated environment to be any kind of microscopic surface (such as that of a virus, for instance)
