OSNews, Generic OSes The last time we did this, it was still 2010, so it's been a while. Since I'm having a hard time finding interesting things to write about today (unless you guys want a story about Apple losing another iPhone prototype at a bar, or about Samsung's god-given quest to launch a tablet/smartphone for each number between 3 and 10), let's do one of those old-fashioned and quaint 'show us your desktop!'-things. I'll start.

Pretty much the same as last year.

No syntax highlighting for C diffs?

Or does OpenBSD only have a monochrome video driver for your hardware? (i'm kidding ;) ). It's very austere, i like the style and i'm sure the contrast is helpful. But you really could consider syntax highlighting ;)

I don't like or want syntax highlighting, I had the diff open in nvi.

ATI Radeon Mobility HD 4250 is used by the chipset, it works fine on OpenBSD with the newer ati DDX..

2D EXA/Xv and r600+ DRI/OpenGL all work fine.

I must ask: Do you enjoy the ultra-widescreen 1366x768 resolution, or does it annoy you? I'm still getting used to my D620's 1280x800, which is less extreme than what you have. My last laptop was an Apple PowerBook G3, with a 1024x768 res. I miss my vertical pixels, especially in the console.

It's also annoying on Windows 7 with that fat toolbar (I know I can shrink it but I like the default look, very KDE 3.x).

That's the native resolution of the panel, or what the DDC returns for it.

Most of the portable systems I've owned in the past had terrible LCD screens, this being one of my first "newer" systems left me fairly impressed. Easy on the eyes, text is clear and colours vibrant.

By comparison I have a LCD TV connected over VGA on another system with a native resolution of 1360x768, and it is visibly harder on the eyes.

Ohh, so close to my old desktop.

See my other comment:
http://www.osnews.com/thread?488139

I have a background and when a window is in the background it does grey text instead of white text.

Although the screenshot is older.

Strangely enough, I'm on GNOME 2 now. Still using aterm.

I'm thinking maybe I want to try GNOME 3, but I probably need to write some extensions to make it useful to me.

I forgot to mention in my original post, but I'm running cwm in OpenBSD base along with xterm, xbattbar, xbiff and xclock.
