    Hi everyone
    I spent this weekend configuring my newly installed Xubuntu and customizing the UI. I guess most people don't use a desktop in here, but if you do I'd love to see your desktop. Please mention whatever tools you've used like widgets, clocks etc.
    Here's mine:

    It's Xubuntu 13.10 with Cairo-Dock and Conky (Gotham and Seamod). The wallpaper is a glider I found online :)

    I have Ubuntu 13.10 (AMD64). On my desktop, I have Cairo-Dock. I used to have screenlets, but it crashed often. I use Wallch to change my wallpaper randomly. Sometimes, I have Wallch display a live image of Earth.

    Well I have recently abandoned Arch, Slack because I got tired of using them. So I switched over to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. As you can see I don't like anything fancy. Unity is bleh Gnome 3 is bleh. Everything else beyond is bleh. So I'm just using good old gnome classic.

    Good old gnome :)
    Try xfce. I'm a gnome 2 fan too. Xfce is gnome-2-ish.

    So do I.:D
    I downloaded the image from Deviant Art. It is supposed to be a so-called "mediaeval" fantasy picture.

    I like your desktop. It looks like a graphical command-line with all of the Conky tools.

    Cairo-dock! Some people love it, others (like me) despise it. The beauty of choice.:D

    Your system almost looks like OS X. Great job.

    Let me show you my latest desktop build:

    [​IMG]

    Surprised?

    My wife's old XP machine finally died. Thankfully!

    The case and power supply (420 W) are in awesome shape. They should be. It was a replacement case that we used to transplant the guts out of the old case a number of years ago.

    Got the case, got the power supply. I already had 4 GB of RAM and a 500 GB hard drive setting around in surplus. So all I needed was:

    * GIGABYTE GA-H61M-S1 LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - About $40 after mail-in rebate.
    * Intel Pentium G2020 Ivy Bridge 2.9GHz LGA 1155 55W Dual-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics - $68
    * SAMSUNG DVD Burner 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 24X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM SATA - $20

    The most expensive part of the build...

    You guessed it!

    * Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - OEM - $100

    Why? Because I could. And because sometimes we still need a Windows machine for work to run certain software that will not run on Linux, in WINE, or in VirtualBox.

    But in my defense, I went the cheapest, best route I could find.

    And just to appease Richard Stallman who would stand before an audience and ask, "Show of hands, please. How many of you have pirated software on your computers?" I have none. Every software package is either OEM or legitimately licensed to me.

    To keep score: I have six Linux machines to one Windows 7 (and it is 7) computer. I'm not one of those Microsoft haters (nor am I a fan), and I'm certainly not one of the snobby Linux elitists who insist that you call it "GNU/Linux."

    Why not post some more of your 6 linux desktops on linux.org instead of your single w7 build? Just a****g...

    I rather not question your immaculate integrity, but paying $100 for windows... I'd be better off buying some piece of high-end hardware. But, hey, everyone has their software needs :)
