    There should be a rule that you can't post a picture of a default desktop with just the wallpaper changed (which I assume the person is probably just posting it to say, I'm cool, I got Linux, I'm a hipster, etc.) unless it is an exceptionally nice wallpaper :D.

    GNOME2 and Compiz. I still love me some Gnome2.

    (System monitor on the bottom was left over from me using that while getting conky setup, its not there anymore :V)

    I looked at Gnome 3 and promptly stopped caring.

    Gnome 2 + Emerald + Compiz = Invincible. However, I've since switched the theme to something else which is pretty similar.

    I want something more minimalistic though. I see a lot of minimalistic screenshots in here and I'm gonna figure out what it is. And run it. With an iron fist.

    You can even shorten that to Gnome2 + Compiz + Emerald = Invincible. Xfce4 is pretty damn good, but I like having a bit more functionality with Gnome2 (with added resource cost).

    And I will. Check my post. MAGIC.

    I'm going to sound either really dumb or smart for this, but I kind of want a notification bar (like the Android) as... I guess an applet on the Gnome Panel, just so I know when people write on my wall or someone mentions me in IRC or something, lol.

    For me it's my love how I can get it to meet exactly what I want it to do as well as how straightforward a lot of things are. It just matches up with the way I work now.

    For me, it's because it works the way I want it to work. Windows works, and I encounter less problems on Windows, but that's because I don't get the chance to tinker with things in Windows. If I have a problem in Linux, I generally will be able to fix it either on my own or with some light google-ing.

    I use linux on a spare machine because it's nerd fun. In practical use, linux is real nippy-like and is great for devs.

    I use Linux for productive reasons. Instead of spending lots of time doing some dumb (but required) job in a limited GUI, I can type a command in the terminal and seconds later, the job is done.

    I also believe there's more limitations in Windows as well as what Niteshifter said.

    Same with me. And the fact that things like libraries and binaries aren't stored the same place makes it hell to develop something on Windows, unless you make your own package manager + repository and storage system (which I did).
    When I'm developing stuff on Windows, I usually use MinGW + MSYS to get the job done. Everything else just .. Seems slow and cluttered and .. Not really logical.

    Just got Linux Mint, been playing around with themes and stuff.

    The theme is Shiki-Wise (included with mint) with my own modifications.

    I'm not sure I like the wallpaper, any suggestions would be awesome.

    AFAIK it's just the default elementaryOS theme with changed settings for docky and other wallpaper (from the set elementaryOS provides).

    I was just pointing that out, it's a really nice desktop anyways, I have a setup close to that too.

    EDIT: Broke my automerge. Nice.

    What did you do?

    Also, I saw this neat command courtesy of this guy that lets you create a neat fractal background by the command line. There's probably some other things you can do with it as well. It also needs imagemagick to work.

    Code:
    convert -size 1280x720 plasma:fractal background.png

    I just booted up my PC, and that was what happened. After a few reboots, it worked fine though :)

    I highly doubt that. I only had the problem once, and it only affected GNOME3 itself. No games or anything was affected, even when the GNOME3 problem you see above was present.

    Edited:

    It's much more likely to have actually been a glitch of sorts.
