I remember that one; it's from Toybox, isn't it? Shame that they changed the text, as "Say hello... again <heart>" fitted to the pic so much better.

Their best work.

Made it yesterday afternoon. Took me an hour or so. Even though I don't like blue, I think it looks good. ^^;

Let's see how long it takes me to get bored of it! :P
I'm curious how you made that. ^^;

Mind sharing the secrets behind it?

Well, it hasn't been long since i last posted a screen. I got tired of my laptop wallpaper fast, so i changed it to a .hack//SIGN themed one.

Notice the beautiful transparency of the taskbar, and also the game icons. Thats right, i did add Halo: Combat Evolved to my collection ^_^

Ok, heres where i come in handy ^_^

There is two ways to do it, and i have tried both ways, so i know.

First way, you need an nVidia card. Get the new drivers from the nVidia site. A little systray icon should appear... if it doesn't just right click on your desktop, and go to nView properties. Then go to effects and click the enable transparency box. Tadaaaa... transparent. ^_^ The only downside i find with this way is that when you go into graphic intensive programs (iTunes in my case), the transparency goes away. It might just be my card... it's a little old -_-'

The second way is to get style xp. The new version is very nice.. get it from themexp.org i think. Once you get that, click the transparency tab, and set the taskbar to transparent. The cool thing about this is you can make the start menu, taskbar, and start menu menu's transparent as well. After you set stuff to transparent, go to the main menu, and select do not use any resources... if you don't plan to skin as well. That will give you transparency, without using your system resources. This does not have the downside of the previous way!

Hope this helps you hobo ^_^

Alright..... it's been a very long while since I posted a desktop anywhere.

So.. here's my current one. There isn't much to show for the wallpaper except for Yukari and Nyamo in the corner, so I left some of my windows up to make it look less boring.

Window decorations are still the same ones I've had for the past couple months or so. I like them.... so, yah.

Cool things going on... I now have two gkrellm monitors running. lostech is the computer you're looking at. ayumu is a headless box in my closet. So, not going to post a screenshot of that box... nothing to show

Anyways. So, explanations of windows.... we have Gaim.. some aterms, Beep Media Player (yay, supports unicode, and can convert shift-jis ID3 tags to unicode on the fly). Also, the gtk distcc monitor. (Showing how ayumu and lostech work together to compile software for each other)
Spoiler:

Linux is fun indeed.

Now that is the type of desktop I like to see! *meow*

if (anime_suki.user_desktop == (linux || freeBSD))
rep++;
else if (anime_suki.user_desktop == windoze)
std::cout << "I'm sick of seeing your boring desktops! They all look the same!" << std::endl;
else
std::cout << "Well, I can at least respect you for being different!" << std::endl;

Comment on rcxAsh's screencap, I don't think I can actually read what's within the terminal, seeing as how both the font and the background color uses some sort of gray variants. And the other thing I noticed among linux gurus is that they like using stylish yet unreadable fonts on the application header, personally, I don't like it, but whatever.

This is my current desktop.

I just felt like being uber-silly, so I made the most ridiculous desktop setup ever. Taking into account I run a laptop, I'm surprised that my system still runs. .

You must have a really good laptop to run all those programs at once.

I really like that wallpaper. Would you mind posting the original image?

I don't see anything wrong with it. It's our system. Let us do as we wish.

Because the mac looks cool. That's not the reason we don't have macs.

Hehe, regarding the terminal colours. When I focus one, the foreground becomes white, instead of the grey that you see in the other two terminals. Hmm, but you bring up a good point. I've been using my aterm the way it is for so long that I have forgotten that I can change the font color. Since I'm using a light background now, perhaps I will use a black foreground.

Oh, and regarding the unreadable title bars. Yah, they're hard to read. But, I don't find myself reading application title bars much anyways. I do hear what you say and I'm probably due for a change soon.

I used to use strictly straight and sharp fonts. But then, for some reason, I decided to try out a cursive font for parts of the environment. It just looked more relaxed and carefree to me.

When I get some time, I want to see about getting my title bars on the sides of the wnidows instead of the top. I wonder how that will be?

Hehe. BTW, nice enlightenment environment there. How is enlightenment anyways? Size and speed wise good?

Lol, and Roots lol, thanks again. You like Linux desktops, don't you? Hahaha. But.. would you still give me a rep++ if I started using XPde? Haha. Joking. Being different is fun.. i think.
