Graphics, User Interfaces Since it's year end, I thought I'd post one more "fun piece" for everybody. After Thom posted an article on his customized KDE desktop, I thought it might be interesting to compare desktop screengrabs and see what other OSNews'ers desktops look like. Are you cluttered or clean? Are you minialist? What's your wallpaper? Upload a picture to an online service or your own website and show off your desktop. I'll start: Adam's desktop (312kb).

I think I'm going to be the first person to commit the sin of posting a Windows desktop. ;)

Nah, you weren't the first and there is no sin in posting s Windows desktop here; they asked for your desktop not for "Any OS but Windows" desktop

Desktop modding is an obsession with a large number of Linux users... It's not surprising that they're very well represented in this thread.

I used to do it as well:

Hey Windows Desktop is still pretty modable. Mine isn't that 'alien' because I am into minimalist design.

I suggest you use TweakUI from MS to remove that recycle bin!

gpedit.msc will also allow you to remove the recycle bin.
"user configuration" "administrative templates" "desktop" "remove recycle bin icon from desktop."
Enable it.
