Oh and before anyone ask about the "Evaluation Copy" label on the desktop, the Geekzone server is running under a Windows Server 2008 Go Live License.

Chaks, have you no respect for the others here?

I've deleted your screenshot. I am sorry but uncompressed PNG is evil, like BMP. A 2 MB image hosted on a slow server is not something we take lightly! Even connected from here with a fast service it took me about 10 seconds to download the image!

Please convert to JPG, 1024 pixels wide and repost or edit the post.

Here's my one:



Notice the thin grey bar on the left - that's a long auto-hidden toolbar with most of my apps on it.

This is mine, image doesn't look too flash after being shrunk down from 1680x1050.



The evaluation copy watermark is only because it is Vista SP1 RC refresh. I'm not a pirate!

Fedora core 6.. very nice. Thinking of going FC7 or... dumping for CentOS so I can gez the redhaz skillz.
Run xp under VM Workstation 6.. runs well on the Toshi Tecra A6 with 1GB RAM. Using xp for visual studio wpf/silverlight dev work.

For games, HL2/Steam I dual boot to xp 8( 

Only game i run under linux is Neverwinter nights, orginal, and can be found (although rarely these days) on the Bonds of Blood server, listed in the rpg section of gamespy.
