    Thanks for the links, I loaded up on enough wallpaper this weekend to keep me going for while :) Here's what I wound up with after cleaning up my desktop, setting up some jump lists, etc.

    Another late member to the party I'm afraid to say.

    My desktop can be viewed (3.0MB, 3600x1080pixel .png file alert!) by clicking this link.

    Its my primary desktop, used about 18hours a day. OS is Debian 6 (Squeeze) 64bit Linux, running XFCE as its desktop environment. It has also been tweeked and customised to my needs, along with other changes. Its by no means finished, I tend to add to it when I have a few mins between projects and commitments.

    The lefthand wallpaper is a picture from the dodgem car area at a park located just outside of Chernobyl in a town called Pripyat. I find it very motivating personally, and its always good to remember our mistakes. The righthand screen contains my Debian wallpaper, along with a transparent terminal, a system information widget, and another widget for the GPU temps. Not in the picture is the weather applet that sits in the right hand top corner of that screen as i was changing some code on it at the time.

    My Windows box is very unadmiring... It just has the UK Aero theme running changing wallpapers with UK landmarks now and then, and thats about it for any changes... Its purely for gaming.

    TS, you should have a post about gadgets and little nifty apps like lets say "Lyrics plugin" etc.
