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.

Debian Testing with Awesome.

The upper right corner shows battery state in percentage and time remaining, wifi SSID and signal strength, currently playing track on MPD, time/date, and the tiling layout.

The applications on display in "dirty" are The Widget Factory to show off my Gtk theme (which I have Qt set to follow in qtconfig), Luakit, and urxvt with a zsh prompt. I also use Vim, irssi, ncmpc++, Iceweasel 6 with Pentadactyl and Mutt like tons of other people, but my configurations for those are pretty stock.

This is sort of a "screenshot within a screenshot" post, since I'm hosting these images on my Sheevaplug running Debian Squeeze.

EDIT:

This is all running on a Dell Latitude E6410 laptop with a 2.4GHz i5, on-die GPU, 2GB DDR3 (trying to seat the second 2GB DIMM has been... fun), and a 250GB HDD.
