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?

This is why I love Open Source, different requirements drive us toward different solutions.

To be perfectly honest, I have after many years of trying still not found an elegant solution to the note/news problem that has good desktop integration.

I started using a personal Wiki on my server, as I wanted to be able to access my notes everywhere. It was fine for more heavy long term notes, but it is bad for the day to day quick notes. But I still wanted my daily notes to be portable. I settled in the end for TomBoy, which has good support for sync. Now I just need the sync to work to my andoid phone.

I use Google Reader for most of my news needs, but I do not use anything the works as a ticker. Now and then when I need a break, I have a routine of surfing various sites to see what is new. Those sites have frequent updates, such Slashdot or local news sites.
Goodle Reader then helps me to keep track of those sites that I do not visit in that rutine, which do not have frequent updates, such as various blogs.
