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?

Nice! I quite like gnome-shell. I thought i wouldn't, but i must admit it looks better and better for every time i look at it. To me, gtk3 and that whole new shebang is what's most exiting though. In with the new, out with the old! ;)

Yep, thought I'd do a Tron theme(Work in progress on deviantART) Which I quiet like to use myself. ;)

Really like GS and the fact it uses CSS3.

An old version. Newer versions have a different overview layout.

As others said, this looks very nice, though I would spontaneously believe that such a dark theme with bright and fuzzy UI widgets would hurt the eyes after looking at it for some times.

Maybe lowering screen brightness would do the trick though.

It's mainly the overview that's got a lot going on but it's not like you sit and look at the overview all day. The workspace is just the panel you see all the time.

This is the best I've ever seen so far. It kicks serious ass while seeming usable.
And your drop that bomb with a mere "Tron Legacy theme." I wasn't prepared to take that visual hit. Throw a warning next time!
How did you reach that? What system is it? Native or very tweaked customized?

GNOME Shell uses CSS3 for the way it looks and themes, so yes it's just customised CSS. I've done many themes so it's pretty easy for me now and the CSS file is pretty easy to understand.

The default theme is just plain black, monochrome.
