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?

My Screen ATM

I am sitting at my laptop at the moment doing some coding.
Pretty much how it looks most of the time. ;)

My laptop is an Amilo PRO:
Screen: 12" 1280x800 laptop display
Screen: 24" 1920x1080 external display (but my laptop gfx card can't handle that high ;) )
CPU: Core Duo @ 1.86 Ghz
Memory: 2048 Mb DDR2
Graphics: Mobile Intel 945 (256 Mb)
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit

I also have a computer in the living room that mostly my girlfriend uses:
Screen: 42" ATEC TV
CPU: Core i3 @ 3.07 Ghz
Memory: 6144 Mb DDR3
Motherboard: ASUSTeK P7P55D LE
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 210 (512 Mb)
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

I also have an XP and an Ubuntu (always latest) virtual machine, both vanilla setup.

My HTC Desire with Android 2.2 has made me able to quickly check stuff out on the 'net. For example which movie some actor was in or a word I can't define.
I also get a notification sound when I receive emails. ;)

Happy New Year!

(I know! I am so boring now when I have switched to Win7 ;) )

I haven't used MS VS in years. Has it changed much (other than the languages it supports)? Doesn't look much different. ;) We are 95% Java in house now... some PHP, some Ruby/Rails... I kind of miss the MS platform.

Actually I am coming from Linux development so this is my first time using VS. I like it, I never really got attached to other IDEs and preferred vim.

The most notable difference in VS 2010 is that you can drag all parts of it around. Place different portions of the application wherever you want. For example I have Errors and Output on my laptop screen. They also rewrote it using WPF so it looks somewhat different (although everything is pretty much still at the same place).

Also the "Call Hierarchy" feature is handy when you want to see exactly what gets called.

What IDE do you use? I am particularly interested in a good IDE for RoR (preferably if it runs on Linux and can access SFTP mounted folders ;) ).
