    Alright, I'm done, I'm done.

    I tried out Docky and that wasn't customizable, so I went over to AWN. Embedded terminals into the desktop, moved Conky Around...

    The now playing on your Conky setup sure looks useful

    Since when did we get an 8 year old girl in the Linux section?

    There's a difference between my not liking something you like, and my realizing that watching an 8 year old girls show, then flaunting it, is the most retarded thing a grown man can do. Have fun ever interacting with an attractive woman ever again if you walk down the street singing the theme songs and order a pizza and have them draw a fucking pony on the box.

    Anyways, lets get back to the beauty of Linux desktops.

    Hahaha, it only works when I have Banshee playing. I was too lazy to make if statements and I'm still new to Conky. :P

    And regarding the pony thing - it's his customization of his desktop. I only dislike the whole pony thing when it's in every nook and cranny of the internet and is irrelevant. His is relevant, so it's not really an issue.

    As a KDE user, I will say that the default KDE looks nothing like that.

    Seeing the kde desktop made me curious to have another look, and I found this:

    That looks incredible, I might give it another shot.

    Most people here are probably using Gentoo or Arch. Otherwise you'd have to learn a lot about how Linux works, and how DE/WM's work, and what the difference between those are. There's a lot more, but doing it all from Ubuntu is going to be quite a hassle. I suggest just using Arch and going on from there.

    You don't have to use Gentoo or Arch to customize your Window Manager.
    You can install Openbox in Ubuntu no problem.

    I don't like the notion that in order to customize your WM you have to use Arch or Gentoo. I used Gentoo for like two years and I used KDE. I did more under the hood customization rather than the UI.

    I never said you had to use Gentoo or Arch to customize your system configuration at all. There's just a LOT of bloat in Ubuntu, and it might be easier for many to learn about the system using Arch or Gentoo first. Of course, one could do it through Ubuntu, but if you want to learn at the same time, I don't think people would understand what the different settings would do exactly and how to utilize them without at least some knowledge of what is going on. Hence it could be less of a hassle to do Arch or Gentoo to learn a bit more. Actually Arch might be better at that, due to the HUGE documentation of software in general the wiki has.

    How to get a great Linux Desktop:
    - Emerald Theme Engine for GNOME environments. (Make sure to get some matching GTK.)
    - Mess with Compiz.
    - Conky + Start messing with some .conkyrc files you find on the internet with the help of google.

    You don't need a specific distribution.

    It's all up to each and his own what makes a good Linux desktop. There's no 'definition'.

    I've been wanting to install arch for awhile now but my netbook doesn't have a cd drive and I don't have any usbs to use.
    Is that a ship model from EVE Online?

    You know, every day moving back and forth between Unity and GNOME 3 is a day I appreciate Unity more. I appreciated GNOME 2's intuitive nature, and 3 doesn't seem to hang on to that...Unity, on the other hand, manages to keep a lot of that GNOME 2 aesthetic while presenting us with the slickest program dock I've yet seen, even over OSX. It's simple, and works. Also, Windows key + typing to search programs is such an under-appreciated piece of functionality, I'm glad it made its way to Ubuntu.

    It's a server, but I still need a GUI safety net for certain things.
    Though I do use the terminal half the time instead of clicking around.

    why I want to be the little girl or why learning the difference can save your life? if the former, it's a joke and you don't get it. if the latter, any confrontation with rizzo could end in disaster without that information
