Too much words on it on the left. Way too much stuff on the right.

 

Oh that thing, it doesn't really bother me.

It's only 20 pixels high and in monochrome (mostly.)

 

@My site template

That's weird.... I just tested it on Safari, Chrome, Opera (Mac)

I love messing with Rainmeter and visual styles. I usually don't do it though because they can both be time consuming. I spend an hour or two looking for Rainmeter skins I like on DeviantArt and then look over the ones I have open in a tab and then get rid of some of them that I don't like upon closer inspection. Same thing for Windows 7 visual styles.

Current desktop, although I have the volume and wi-fi tray icons on the taskbar now since it's a PITA to have to click the tray dropdown every single time. Wi-fi because it always drops so I have to tinker with it (through my browser to access DD-WRT settings and such).

 

Anyways, decided to add a bit more of a retro flare to my desktop so I just decided to go with this.

 

 

Crapload of previous desktop setups. (Click to show)

 

Previous desktop, just for fun.

And even further back.

And then before that.

And I think my first Rainmeter experiment after just using Enigma which is one of the recommended skin suites on the Rainmeter website. I didn't get into swapping start buttons yet at that point. Same with visual styles so I was using the awful Aero Glass visual style that's standard in Windows 7.

Same here.

 

This.

This.

Show me some instructions on the visual style editing :D I like your backgrounds n stuff.

But start bar on top = ........

Too used to classic style. Too old to change.

^Example of some WP i used to use before dual monitor setup.

Mostly are colorful. But the pictures all follow a theme color or hue.

My laptop on the other hand uses completely different sets of WPs... let me go ss that.

 

@bowei: By Jude if you meant my avatar then I got it from that TMAC thread.

Can't see the currawongs thanks to greyscale (minus the eyes, which cannot be seen anymore).

I commented on Facebook but no, I do not just get review samples and get them for a bit. That is actually incorrect, that is way too difficult. You get to keep them. See how much easier things are now

 

What are we talking about???

Red Pandas are adorable.


Better, no? biggrin.gif
The difference between my storage dump+gaming machine (desktop) vs. current main machine (laptop).
Folder in dead center is for my school project. So that I don't forget, it has to stand out like crazy.

Hmm... English people in Anime yet again. Not sure what to say.

 

Always in semi formal clothing and very blonde hair.

 

I was waiting for the bad engrish but only the MC could say some.

Are we showing desktops? Finally a chance to reminisce about my old setups, where I had taste and put in effort to make it look good and usable. Though, as I said it was partly out of a certain chuuni desire to be a 1337 h4x0r that I started mucking with Arch. Its damn sad at 14, I was messing around with AwesomeWM, tiling stuff, using the command line etc., and at 16.5, I am just a Windows 7 normal. :/ My old Arch setup was also where I kept my entire K-On folder because I was sure no one in the family would be able to log in to my account from the command line and then start X11, thereby starting the GUI. And when I messed up compiling kernel 3.0, everything broke, so no K-On folder for me. >frown.gif
Past desktops:




Back when I put in effort...
No screens of my current 7 laptop. Its just a aftermarket visual style from Deviantart and a simple wallpaper.

Thumbs up for another Arch user.

I think everyone on the Arch forums looks to be a 1337 h4x0r with their 5 second boots, 10MB kernel, WMs stripped of any functionality, and that inbred elitism so rampant on the forums. You should have stuck to Gentoo, we're all nice there!

I used arch before(for like a n hour) and it was nice but i prefer others to be used as instals for consumers.

If i only browsed the web, those 5s boots would be sweet but i also game and use many programs

Yeah, have to circumvent with VMs for all those crappy windows-only programs. Everything else is mostly covered. And since games aren't my forte (only thing I ever play is UT3 and Eve, both of which either work natively or perfectly on Wine), but at least Steam's out, and there's potential in the future.

 

What's amazing is how well everything just works out of the box now, especially driver support. I have had less problems installing Mint than installing W7 on a brand new custom box with UEFI, Ivy Bridge, all that pizazz. Can't say I've broken an install in years.

Well, I did try to fix it when it was broken. Reinstalled like 4-5 times, each time trying a different WM/DE. I have tried Compiz-Standalone, Pekwm, Openbox, AwesomeWM, XFCE. Of these, I came back most to Openbox, because it struck a good balance between lightness and a large userbase (therefore more support). If pressed though, I would say I like Pekwm the most, but it was a little rough around the edges and there was not enough new themes. Compiz-standalone was just fun. And actually quite light. Worked smoothly on a 1.3 Ghz Pentium M (!!) with transparency, wobbly windows, cube, Expose and effects enabled. Tiling was just not my thing. Not a coder, and I can't see myself adapting to the workflow in a tiling setup. Pity. I like the aesthetic with good terminal colours.

Also, Faenza in your screenshot makes me feel old. I last touched Arch for real before Faenza came out and Elementary was an iconset, not an entire distro. I still remember breaking Arch once by compiling the kernel wrongly to boot faster. That said, there is something special is creating a setup dictated by yourself through Arch, and the documentation is frankly exemplary. I would reinstall it on my new laptop, but my parents won't allow it, and I am inexplicably scared of installing it, despite being able to salvage it for sure if anything goes wrong. And it would probably look great on a widescreen monitor, as compared to 1024x768. Thank goodness a fair bit of my configs are either on the Arch forums or the Crunchbang forums.

Went from Openbox to dwm last year, never came back. It's just infinitely more polished (feature complete and stable at this point) and more...dynamic. Don't need to be a coder in order to enjoy a faster workflow! And there is usually never the need to reinstall if you're trying to fix something. That's one of Linux's strengths, modular and configurable from the ground up.

You think you're old? I still remember using KDE3, hell no X at all even (back when we could browse with elinks without missing much). Those new-fangled DEs...ooohh. I would just not mess with the kernel (I shouldn't talk though tongue.gif) if you want no troubles. Just strip the initramfs, use systemd, e4rat if you're still a non-SSD user, bam, 5 second boot.
