My laptops latest configuration

http://sas-spidey01.livejournal.com/180655.html

First time I've actually used this sort of look and feel, I usually have lightly coloured desktops (whites/grays/blues) but I rather like how it's come out lol.

I must be a right boring bastard by comparison. Bold colours and fancy background images aren't my thing at all. In fact anything surplus to bare minimum requirement gets right on my nerves.

I've become fond of Server 2008 as I can run it using only the processes I need which is a refreshing change from the computational quagmire of bundled XP or Vista OSs. I'm still too much of a wuss to venture outside of Windows or OSX for fear of a compatibility nightmare.

Good Stuff Spidey, remarkably similar to the latest Ubuntu Dirol
Amazing GUI.

From some of the stuff I've heard about that, I think it would be a nice idea Adze... but running a commercial server OS is to expensive for casual usage.

Especially when FreeBSD is a professional grade server OS and free lol.

ehhh.. the default gnome 2.x looks and layout in ubuntu is quite different imo. Take the presence of the 2 permanent top/bottom bars for example, or the color schemes.

This theme doesn't suit my tastes, even if I like the *box family of wms. I also prefer the use minimal sized widgets, fonts, etc.

Maybe my tastes may be closer to Adze's, although I do sometimes like to throw in a nice (suitable) wallpaper to go with pseudo-transparent terminals.

gkrellm doesn't automatically go in the slit? If I have some kind of stats running, I usually have them always showing.

gkrellm can be easily withdrawn into the slit, I just don't like the extra pixels worth of border the slit seems to add to it.

My screen space is usually dominated by 3 windows, terminal, chat, and documentation. The rest just changes to keep me from getting lazy eye ^_^
