    Posting Guidelines:

    • If possible attach your image with your post here
    • Any information on the themes, wallpaper, icons or any addition programs you have used to customize your desktop and a link to where they can be obtained would also be nice.
    • Finally please don’t post any screenshots that contain anything of a pornographic nature or that wouldn’t be safe to view at an educational establishment in the workplace.

    Mac OS X 10.5.4

    Linux, Mandriva 2008

    To save desk space i use a program called Synergy

    That allows me to use my mac's keyboard and mouse to control the other machines via network, its cross platform so no worry about win/lin/bsd/mac oh and best of all, its free!

    well thats my desktops.. nothing special really, any questions just ask :)

    Wallpaper: A Turtles wallpaper I got from 4chan.

    The icons on my desktop aren't very exciting. Firefox, WorldWide Telescope which is like Google Earth but for the universe and GameCollector in which I keep track of all the games I own and finished.

    The bar on the bottom of my screen is Winbar. This shows my CPU load, my RAM use (which doesn't work properly since I have 3Gb RAM, not 2, but they're not updating the program anymore apparently), my uptime, a tracker of Tweakers (which is a dutch tech website) and a download/upload meter.

    The background is called Exploding Water and InsaneNutter gave me it. Much impressed with the BG's he gave me so may post more desktops when I'm in the mood for a new desktop :D.

    I thought I would add my laptop as I took the screenshot the other day and never got around to uploading it, it’s similar to the desktops except the background is Kirb Fortress

    Nice desktop InsaneNutter, I like the background. Reminds me of Pokemon! :D I like the one to the left holding the sniper.

    Vista is not as bad as everyone makes out, many companies don’t really feel the need to upgrade as XP is working perfectly fine for them.

    Anyway back to the original topic I’m guessing your desktop still contains images of a pornographic nature Mr Original ;)
