    I'm not sure where exactly I got that background from. I most likely found it at Deviantart.com. I'd definately suggest browsing through those listings if you haven't before.. I haven't seen any Linux desktops posted, there's gotta be a few out there?

    What a coincidence. I was just browsing Deviantart.com for some other app skins..

    I'll post my laptop's SS (running Linux) in a few minutes. It's running KDE 2.1 with anti-aliased text with some cool Aqua themes. Now if only Xinerama (X's dual monitor thingy) would work on my desktop......

    KDE 2.1 rocks.

    Unfortunately, my computer tends to run graphical programs slower than I think it is supposed to. Could it be that my graphics memory is shared with RAM? Can anyone point me in the right direction? (That sentence reminds me of C++ pointers. )

    Anyway, because of that I have a very sad desktop. I never go to it anyway. There are usually at least ten windows over it and I do not have the show desktop shortcut, so the chances of getting to it quickly are slim.

    Here's my KDE desktop... ( Version 1.1.2 )

    http://centrice.net/kde_shot.jpg

    It's nothing really impressive at the moment but i've gotta give it credit for how well it performs with these spec's. Caldera OpenLinux, AMD K6 300mhz, 64mb's RAM, Diamond Stealth III and an old Dell 13" monitor. I couldn't get the video display where I want just yet. It's running on my old system, I wasn't able to get it to work with the new one..

    I was wondering about the effect shared memory would have.. I could only get it to work when I installed a seperate video card, even then i'm stuck with 800x600 on it.. I'd like to get a decent Linux box up and running, but I think i'd have to put together a shopping list of new parts to have everything be compatible. For now, it's fun for messing around with but I can't get much more out of it.

    It's part of the wallpaper. Funny, I can tell that you don't use Photoshop much or you would recognize that as a screenshot of the ruler.

    There are tons of things that you could do with 4 monitors. A friend of mine used to play a flight Sim on 3 monitors. He mapped the left, front and right views to each monitor. So when he looked to the left, he saw out the "left side" of the plane and so on.

    I would LOVE to have one more monitor. I could leave email up on one all the time, then I could have a browser window open on another and the active programs such as Photoshop, EditPlus open on the primary.

    Oh yeah, just compared it to PS's ruler. Looks the same. I've been using Photoshop since 2.0 for the Mac (if I remember correctly), and I use it daily, so I should have known that

    I think three of them would be just right..
    I use one of those three piece angled desks. If I could setup one monitor on each section and sit between them, wow that'd be paradise.

    Most likely though, I simply need to get out more.

    I love my two 19" and would REALLY love a third; spending $250 or so on a refurbished monitor on ubid is perfectly fine (the second dell 19" I have now I purchased over a year ago from ubid and it works great).

    What I REALLY want are LCD monitors so I don't break my back when I move my monitors.

    I've looked at the LCD monitors, but only the top of the line ones seem to have the quality that you would get out of a $200-300 monitor. I figure a few years from now they'll be standard items on a computer package, i'll wait until then.

    My new Dell Insprion 8000's LCD is amazing; I'm sure in order to get quality 19"s they would be thousands of dollars each.

    As Hartmann said, he is "required to run RH7.1 [Linux] with ClassicGnome".

    It's about 200K so only high-speed users should have a look at it (and also because I can't be bothered optimising it )

    The desktop comes courtesy of Tabernack....
    My 2 Cents (or is that 2.2 Cents including GST?)

    You can download most distributions for free (I don't know of any that you can't) at their websittes. Popular distributions can be found at:

    http://www.linux-mandrake.com/en
    http://www.suse.com/
    http://www.redhat.com/
    http://www.corellinux.com/

    If you can't/don't want to download them (they can be over a gig to download) you can buy them at most computer stores.

    Currently I am running Linux Mandrake and love it

    Yes, you can install Linux and keep your existing OS. In fact, you can install several versions of Linux and Windows on the same computer.

    Linux is faster, more powerful, and more fun than Windows in my opinion. You can't use the programs that you are used to, but there is a linux counterpart to just about every Windows program. Linux isn't too good with games though.

    Nice desktop, BC. I see that you are one of the members in the "auto-hide taskbar" club (that's a good thing, btw).

    Just wondering...what is "Big Pond Advance"?

    Big Pond is an ISP in Australia, I also use Telstra Big Pond.

    Amen to that! I am debating on getting a 15" flat-screen LCD or a regular, old, but larger, 19". What do you guys think? I can't afford going up to a 17" flat-screen.
