Wow. You sure have a truck load of desktop icons, Greg. I buried mine in a dock but my wife prefers to have hers on her desktop like you. Nice looking wallpaper.

Desktop on my new iBook G4.

Runs Leopard. Though soon to be Tiger, because leopard doesn't seem to want to be real snappy with only 1GB of ram. It's a 12", 1.33Ghz btw.

Installed Windows 8 on my desktop a few weeks back. Really liking it thus far. It's been a nearly seamless transition from Windows 7. My workflow has been uninterrupted by the change.

Nice.
I've been getting a few old Macs recently. I've been trying to not to run the latest (supported) OS on them.
Firstly, I don't see the point on running the latest OS, and I have other more recent Macs to run latest Mac OS.
Secondly, I'd prefer smoother usage than new(er) fancy features.

Yea, Though I do run Lion on my 2007 black macbook I just got. Not sure if this machine is supported by Mountain Lion or not.

Why do I have a feeling that desktop wallpaper looks a bit Windows?

It reminds me of the clouds wallpaper from Windows 98, here it is:

Desktop currently. Just reinstalled Windows.

I like my desktop to be clean. Hence the only icon being the recycle bin. Everything else is launched from the start menu usually.

I've been recently upgrading my tech collection. Which includes an Early 2008 MacBook Pro, a new 20" (2009 er something) iMac, and an older 2007 Mac Mini. That'll all be posted on the pictures of your computer thread once I finish getting everything set up.
But for now, here's my desktop on my MacBook Pro:

(Image size was reduced, full image can be found here.)

Background image is from Interfacelift, pretty neat images there. If you've got the time give it a look over. :D

I shall call this one "The Boys".
Featuring two of my three cats, Boom and Pow. Boom is the dark grey one, and Pow is the curious orange one.
