Sometimes I feel the need to show others how good a Linux desktop is, and what better way of doing it than by taking screenshots of my own desktop every now and again
Interestingly enough you can look at the various aging screenshots and see just how far the Linux desktop has gone over the years. Its quite cool really, reminiscing about the bad old days.

I made the silly mistake of going to a Fluxbox styles website that Dave pasted. I settled on one I liked and modified it somewhat. This is the resulting screenshot

Moved from Gnome to Fluxbox last night, desktop is still a mess, and the other workspaces are hidden away. Need to spend more time on developing a decent theme and playing with things like pagers, desklets etc.. Will post another screeny sometime soon as a comparison.

After a long tiresome night of getting side tracked and redesigning myrddin.org, this is pretty much the state of my desktop when I woke up the next day. Of course for the purpose of the screenshot I had to fire up the usual mplayer

Its been a while since I posted a screenshot, however with a little promting from John, I have produced another. The screen layout still hasn’t changed a great deal in the last year or so, the only notable things different are gnome 2.10, and yes thats one of the default wallpapers but I like it Usual things going on though, work, home, play, tv via my hdtv card etc… yet another day in the life of me..

I think its time for another screenshot. Unfortunately I’ve been too lazy to update anything significant, but nonetheless you can still see what goes on for my machine on a daily basis

tis been about 6 months since my last screenshot. Not much has changed really due to the workload I have been under. I am on annual leave at the moment so thats not really any excuse is it? I will however attempt to change may desktop layouts and produce a fresh new screenshot in the near future.

Recently installed Linux Client for eBusiness that I use day to day which is based on Fedora. Its not too bad to say the least, tho I wish my work T22 was a tad better specced as its only 1024×768 resolution. Nonetheless gnome is pretty sexy on it. There’s a patched version of gaim running (from cvs) with some sametime modules only available from internal IBM cvs repositories, xchat, gnome terminals ssh’ed to some work machines etc… usual day in the office i guess one might say

Installed debian on the work lappy (IBM Thinkpad T22) and using my new Netgear MA401 PCMCIA wireless card. Using Gnome 2.4 with the usual assortment of apps running like xchat, gkrellm along with some gnome applets like battery monitor & wireless link monitor.

Another screenshot of nothing in particular, not much has changed at all.
Desktop is simply less cluttered since I have started utilizing the virtual desktops. Finally fixed a small font issue on one of my debian ‘sarge’ machines so I can run gkrellm across an ssh session. Also finally got off my arse and set up the other machines on my network to do the same thing with glrekkm over ssh. The gkrellm skin is one of my favourites, it is called “MonkeyLovers”.

Finally got the shits with Gnome2 and its problems with Debian Sid (unstable branch) and moved across to KDE 3.1. I am very impressed with it and as you can see, this is my current desktop. I’m still getting used to all the KDE tools, but its slowly getting there.

First screenie of 2003. This one hasn’t really changed much. I like the layout I have across the dual 19″ displays. Only thing different in this screenie is the fact that I am running dvd::rip with the transcode preview. Browser is Galeon, terms are gnome-terminals (yes i know i should migrate to Eterm’s, I’m getting there…), gnome is 1.4 still and the irc client is xchat.

Been a while since I’ve taken a screenshot of my workstation. Its now got dual 19 inch monitors @ 3200×1200 resolution being powered by an NVidia Geforce4 Ti4600 card. Very sexy stuff indeed.

Fluxbox, Transparent borderless Eterms, gkrellm using the SKirellm skin and a funky fluxbox theme. Nice and lightweight, and therefore is great for the SMP gateway box (not that the SMP box needs to be lightweight, but thats another story altogether )

Just come back after a power outage, so nothing too interesting on screen. Using Debian 3.0 (Woody) with Gnome 1.4 and sawfish. Galeon 1.2.0 is the browser you see. The terms are all shaded transparent gnome-terminals. Gkrellm (top) is of this machine, and bottom one is being run over an ssh session to tokra.amonra.ath.cx my gateway/firewall. The gkrellm skin is called SentiEnce.

I so very much love debian. The only reason I hated it before was because it too so damn long to install the fucker to ‘testing’ status (woody). But now that its installed and apt-get -u upgrade’s are reasonably quick over the modem link I am loving every minute of it. I have my desktop looking almost as usual, and its awesome. What more can I say? *uNF*

New install of Debian on my workstation. This makes it a Triple Boot between Win2k/Redhat7.2/Debian woody. This is only a fresh installation and Window Maker is the window manager in use.
myrddin.internal.amonra.ath.cx – 2001.11.02
Brand new fresh installation of Mandrake linux on my workstation. I kinda screwed up my debian install, and i was ‘convinced’ as one mught say, to install mandrake 8.1
Very impressive, but I still think I’ll be playing around with debian more in the future

screwing around building a win2k server with terminal services.. *gasp*
yeh i know its sad, but its something to play with.. but nonetheless, there’s a kewl term serv client for linux called rDesktop of which you can see me using in this screenshot )
funky shit i must say =P

ximian gnome installed, normal tail’ing of log files, ‘cat /proc/cpuinfo’ and ‘free’ to show basic box specs, its also currently using the 2.4.3-12smp kernel
