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).

ArchLinux+E17

Used to be a *box user, but once you add the usual stuff (bar/conky/fm/etc) it just got too darn slow. Plus, E is pretty ;)

Thanks, I wanted to see a recent shot of e17 ;) . I haven't used it for about a year now...

It's looking really good, is it reliable again (I used it about a year ago and it was solid, then 5 months later it wouldn't run for 5 minutes without crashing)?

Happens with some modules, if you only use the stock ones then you'll be fine. Going on a year here.

My previous desktop yes, the light got to me in the end, I prefer something reminiscent of the hazed dark cave I live in.
