    If anyone wants some really cool desktop backgrounds, go to digitalblasphemy.com. My current desktop is the newest addition to the free backgrounds.

    I just realized I don't know how to post a picture on this site. It won't let me copy and paste, so here is the link. You really should just go the main website, most of the backgrounds are awesome; I have about 35 on my computer.

    You "print screen" your desktop by pressing the "print screen" button on the keyboard if using PC, but using Mac, you "CMD+Shift+3" on your keyboard. That should make an image file in your desktop or my documents in pc. Then upload the print screen pic, usually jpg, to your isp server.

    Thanks, it is courtesy of one of Guille's sites: www.g-coria.tk, nice talent for making wallpapers from the looks of mine and the other walls on the site. I hope they make one for the French Open just like they made this Australian Open one.

    Well, usually when people post their desktops, people like to show off their visual styles and skins.. but not scez... scez goes against the grain, scez dares to be different and post's scez's original desktop! with a twist! Why do I keep saying scez? scez scez scez! im too lazy to post my desktop.. plus, it's dirtied up right now, I'd have to organize it before I take the screen shot.



    edit: That lobster looks good

    dAgEnIuS,

    If you want wallpapers of pros or gear, you can visit their designated sites and there will usually be a section for downloads such as wallpaper, there are different kinds that you can choose from that may fit your liking. Or you can make your own.

    Actually none of them. Not even Linux :)

    It's a standard GNOME desktop on Sun Solaris 9 on SPARC hardware. The desktop is spread out over three 1280x1024 TFT monitors controlled by three Sunray1 thin clients with the X server running in Xinerama mode.

    It's quite convenient to have a huge desktop :)
