    It's always fun/interesting to see how others have their desktop designed.

    Guidelines:

    1. Forum rules on content apply. In other words, make sure it's safe for everyone to see! ;)
    2. Take a moment and tell everyone the details of your desktop, such as the OS, wallpaper name, and the theme name etc.
    3. Link to pictures, or if posting in thread, spoiler them if needed. Use best judgement. We can fix either way.

    Nothing special; just Ubuntu 8.04 with the ThinkLinux background.

    Nice flat. Dual 19"s is what we have too. (foo and I work together, by the way).

    It's amazing what a second monitor can do for productivity. Seriously..

    I cannot imagine trying to do all that I do with a single monitor! I would like to have three or maybe four... Of course, I am dreaming, because my bosses would never go for it. ;)

    WinServer 03 running SharePoint 07 and Visual Studio 08. Those are the important apps.

    I am my own portal.

    Dual 17".

    Last place I had a similar software setup, but with a 17" and a 24" WS. Talk about resolution differences.

    Here's my home computer. Those are the 22" monitors I got last week :D (which just went down 10 more bucks till the 31st. It is a GREAT deal if you're lookin')

    The 22's are on my main desktop computer. The monitor to the left is on my server box and I use an awesome software switch for the mouse and keyboard. It's a seamless transition moving my mouse over to that monitor, it takes control of input, and then back again. Reconnects when either reboot.

    I <3 my setup.

    Sorry for the quality, was taken with my phone with no intention of putting it up on the intertubes later.
