I couldn't find a thread like this so I thought it may be fun to see what other Linux users  have. This my Mint 18.1 install on a Dell Inspiron i7 15" 2 in 1

 

 

 

Edit; added a busy screen

I keep mine as simple as possible... My Linux installation is for when I want to be productive so standard basics such as Atom, a Linux Terminal (with zsh), Chromium as well as node.js, python etc installed. I use Arch Linux w/ Gnome.
