The Desktop Thread

Postby DJGM » Wed 05 Feb, 2003 4:41 pm

Desktops! Show us yer desktops . . . !

As this type thread has been quite popular on at least one other forum
on which I'm a member, I'm launching a similar thread here @ SD701,
giving you the opportunity to show us all what your desktops look like:

Just make a screengrab of your desktop or desktops from the OS or
the OSes you use on your PC or Mac, shrink it down to a reasonable
size, not too small, not too large. Upload the desktop screengrabs to
some personal webspace, preferably with a webspace provider that
allow the remote linking of images. So free webpage hosting services
like GeoCities and Angelfire are obviously out of the question. For the
benefit of those that are still accessing the internet via dial-up, please
try not to make your images, any larger in filesize, than around 80Kb.
Please use file image formats suitable for the web: (*.jpg, *.gif, *.png)

Without any further ado, here's my own desktops . . .

First up, Mac OS X (10.1.5)
Image

Next, Mac OS Classic (9.2.2)
Image

Now here's SuSE Linux 8.1 (KDE 3.0.5)
Image

Last, but by all means least, Windows (XP Home)

Well, I have uploaded my desktop screenshot.
However, some viewers might feel offensive. (No pornographic, but not suitable for viewers under age of 16.)

I'm not going to resize mine, and since I can't use HTML, I'm just going to link to it.

Here's mine under Windows 98 Second Edition.

The wallpaper came from Wapers. Their home page states: All Wallpapers: Freeware.

Thank you Antony, for hosting the image.

Well most of you guys that use Microsoft Windows have XP. But I am still using good old Microsoft Windows ME Millennium Edition. Below is the wallpaper for my desktop computer (sticking to good old clouds), which is currently running Microsoft Windows ME Millennium Edition (a lot of programmes I know!). I also do have a laptop computer, which is currently running Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition (even older!) but it currently does not have access to the Internet so I will post it’s desktop later on.

Whoops!
Just remembered my wallpaper is still in its original size so I can’t post it. To view it just click on the link below.

IMO, there's nothing good about buggy old Windows Malignant Edition!
