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.

I could come over and end it painlessly...

Do you even use half of those applications? It does remind me of my dad's desktop where he forgot what half of the icons are supposed to do...

Ow, I'm just against clutter and fairly minimalistic. Having applications and or files on my desktop that I don't use would drive me nuts. Best to shove them all in a junk folder. (out of sight and out of mind ;) )
