Graphics, User Interfaces A long time ago, we asked everyone to show their desktops, and we figured it would be nice, on this (for me) cold and dreary Monday to do that all over again, over two years later. The questions remain the same: cluttered or clean? Icons or no icons? Dual or single panel layout in GNOME? How free-form is your Plasma desktop? Are there any real computer users in here (as in, using CDE)? Read on for my own two desktops.

My good old openbox desktop:

and my new enlightenment desktop:

the ob desktop is the result of about 2 years of iterations, looking for a lightweight taskbar and a few essential systray application to do some extra work (post-it, check email, manage wifi, control the volume).

The e17 desk is quite new, I'm still experimenting with it. It's designed to let windows use the full height, having all the essential stuff (icon only taskbar and clock) in one sidebar. There is actually a launchbar on the top, but it only appears on mouseover.
