Sitting here looking up car stuff while I wait for a laptop I am fixing for somebody to finish doing what its doing. Decided to take a screenshot of my desktop. ‘Why would you do that RallyDarkstrike?” you ask?
Well, as silly as it sounds, I’ve been keeping an archive of the way my desktops look on and off since 2004 - fun to see how things change! :D
AND...jump to Modern Times:
My tastes and methods have changed somewhat. I try to have a cleaner desktop than I did way back when (although I use blank .txt files as sticky notes) and try to stick with a uniform color scheme - usually red on my desktop due to the icon theme I use on RocketDock. I do have a few long-term things I keep on my desktop. There’s the t-shirt design I occasionally work on for Blipshift I wish to submit someday, and the damaged zip file (top-left) for a friend’s ancient Wolfenstein 3D ‘Total Conversion’ mod I’d love to get working again from when we were all in Jr. High School.
As for similarities, I still like having a ‘menu’ on the right, although nowadays that toolbar is by using RocketDock for added style and functions. I also still like Auto-hidden taskbars...
My modern Linux laptops’ desktops have been very similar, minus the menubar on the right and txts as sticky notes...
My first Linux desktops were just me playing around in Virtual Machines...
Anybody else weird in the head and do something similar for posterity and fun? :P
