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 desktop, gentoo+gnome 2.30

Linux 2.6.34-gentoo-r12 #1 SMP PREEMPT x86_64 AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 5000+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux.

The mobo is a somewhat shitty ASUS M2A-VM HDMI, 4 GB of RAM, an external ATI Radeon HD 3450 (rather than the internal onboard sh..tuff), and a 500 GB harddisk and a smaller 320 GB harddisk.

The OS is gentoo GNU/Linux with Gnome 2.30 and obviously Compiz Fusion. It's one of the few funny (read: from ~amd64) things I allow on my system. Apart of course using an adapted Oxygen icon set.

I've also got Windows Server 2008 installed, but why bother with that? Same background image, acquired from deviantart, but different OS, different icons - but pretty much the same software stack above the OS.

EDIT: changed picture.
