Your's not bad Burnside. Is that xfce4 desktop? Sorta like an OS X style.

How do you make it small like you guys and can click to get bigger size?

Thnx.

Yeah, it's XFCE 4.4 RC1. I got hooked on OSX at work. I like it's functionality, but I don't like how many resoucres is consumes... apt-get install skippy and a half hour of work later... voila!

That's pretty good; with gkrellm and a few other things even really minimalistic WMs can look cool :)

On my desktop I've also changed the colour scheme dramatically (everything's blue, selected items are bright green, etc.) and that small panel in the corner is not always on top, so I have it raise whenever I move over that corner.

Thnx for the compliments. I think I'll try that skippy look for more of an OSX style. I'll play around with some different schemes also.

I've changed colour schemes because the transparency effect I had on was taking up way too much in terms of RAM.

wow! I am always amazed by the way that Debian/Linux can be customized! all these desktops are great! I have Gnome installed too-but don't use it much and had Xfce4 too but removed it as I am just happy with KDE (for now!)
Screenshots should be a permanent thread in the forums!

Burnside your background is really stunning can you post a link to it?

Perhaps a mod might want to sticky this thread.
