Humor I shall make no bones about the fact that this request is purely filler material, but such threads have been a success in years past. Dear OSNews readers please furnish us with your wondrous and diverse desktop screenshots and machine specifications! Considering that I have used the same wallpaper and platform since 2006, there is no great insight that I can bring to the table. Also, whilst I'm here--OSNews Asks: How have mobile OSes changed your habits this year?

Thank you for the hint, but I have always found that not putting things on the desktop is the way to go. I have shortcuts in the Places menu for the most important. Editors typically have directory or project viewers embedded within.

Regarding viewing various system monitor data applets, like Conky. I do not feel the need to relentlessly monitor my system all the time. If I feel the system performance degrade, I will monitor my system. This is done with a combination of using the Hardware Monitor applet in the panel and top in a shell. Since I have been using the same computer for +4 years, I have a pretty good feel for when something is not performing correctly.
