Default Official Post your Desktop Thread - March edition

I just want to show off some screenshots I took, but since it's almost March, I figure what the heck, lets get the march desktop thread going!




Inside the cube


zooming in to the edge of the cube







Switching between 'virtual' desktops on a 3D cube



Same as the OSX's 'expose' effect, where windows zoom out to be arranged, allowing you to select the one you want

First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist;
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak out for me.
By the late 1980s, Stallman had refined it to a more simple mnemonic:
"Don't think free as in free beer; think free as in [freedom]."

Caleb, do you mean this wallpaper, none are actually highways, so it might not be what you were expecting. And the transparancy is just one of many features, if you want to see a video of it in action check the XGL video in my signature

I've always run the Windows 98 UI. It looks the best. I just switch the colors a bit to flow with my wallpaper and I'm good to go.

But now I must finish editing Essay.doc 'cause the final is due today.
