Show Us Your GNU/Linux Desktop
« on: November 29, 2021, 09:57:21 PM »
This is a thread that we've had a lot of fun with over the years at Scot's Newsletter Forums. It's the place where you can post screenshots of your desktop setup. It's like looking at someone's actual desk/work area. It tells you something about people by the way the set things up. ;)

This screenshot here is the very first one I posted at Scot's in 2007...



And this one is the one I have on my system at the moment. You'll notice that there hasn't been much change in my setup for the last 14 years or so. ;)



Have fun with it, folks!

Here's how things look on my Thinkpad T430 running Debian Linux with GNOME as my desktop.

HAHA! Gooder! This place really needs some "thumbs up" or "Like" avatars. 👍 Oooh, I think that works!

You can find icons like the 👍 above by going here --> https://copychar.cc/popular/

So what does mine say about me?? I love terminal apps and don't care for aesthetics?
