I haven't seen one of these since I've been here but with XGL and AIGLX I thought it would be time to post one. Mainly becase I'm excited about XGL though.

Anyway heres mine



Yes its GNOME but its also XGL.

Can anyone remember an app which came out ages ago, not project looking glass, but another one that allowed you to spin your 3d desktop...can't remember.

I use kcometen3 as a screensaver, does some funky 3d stuff with desktop image, and fireworks too, gotta have fireworks Smile

Seeing as we've already blown the forum size:

uTorrent on Linux. How I wish they would open source that and get a proper port. It's such a fantastic program its a shame that its Windows only without the benefit of wine.

Also moAlleyCat I love it. Which DE/WM is that. I'm thinking of something less flashy for an older machine I have.

I'd post mine, but you see it enough in the mag! Doesn't anyone else use IceWM? And what do folks think of TekWM? Smile

I used to have really messy desktops. In my doze days I could never be bothered removing shortcuts.
Because they were there I used them and they became standard. Recently I've made a big effort to switch to using panels.
Even my XP boot looks clean now. I'll get a shot of that now.

//edit - here it is.



I've got 2 hidden panels in both bottom corners with the systray a menu with the apps I actually use and start button in them. The three tabs at the top give me My Computer/Documents/etc., A volume control and the time. I did most of this out of boredom though. I only play games in XP and I used to kill explorer for that anyway.

//edit2 - of course I use uTorrent as well. How does that work in Linux. Are you using Wine, Cedega or Crossover.

I run Utorrent on Cedega, (the CVS version - Free Very Happy ) it probably runs fine on wine, it just happens that I have cedega installed so I figured I'd try that first. I have crossover installed on another machine if you want me to see how well it runs on there. Utorrent is a damn good program I have to say, and even when using it under Cedega it integrates into the environment really well, i was worried that the bit where you do a search and it opens a web browser on the appropriate site wouldn't work, but it does albeit a few seconds after you expect it to Wink

I still thing uTorrent is a form of magic or something. Prehaps they have a big server and all the work is done by them so all you've got running is a GUI on your side.
Az used to completely choke XP (though is admittedly better on Linux) with a 1GB RAM machine forced to use 2GB of page file after about 8 hours.
