Another desktop thread? Oh well, I'm still using the same old desktop I used last time.

My Desktop

Since that screenshot was taken, I've reverted back to good, old, Win2k-style taskbar, and a couple of new icons have appeared (though not that many).

Am I the only one here who uses Machinae shit as their background/homepage/bedsheets?

Ok...I made that last one up...

For over a year I used MDX's Terraspace Machinae logo as my background. Before that, I used the steel Machinae wallpaper for about 7 months.

I got my iMac in January, so it's barely been a couple of months since the last one, 'cause I started it!

This is my desktop this March, filled with stuff I usually use. I use EyeTV to view Freeview digital TV (watched Formula One on it this morning ;)), World of Warcraft for my daily fix of gaming addiction and the Camino browser for browsing the internet. Camino is a Mactintosh specific version of Mozilla, in the same way that Firefox is. Firefox is available on the Mac, but I'm giving this a whirl. It's actually quite good, it has the same flaws as Firefox (i.e. problems rendering Flash in websites) but it's getting better. And yes, it does do all this at once. WoW runs a bit jerky at times due to Rosetta dynamically translating the PowerPC code of EyeTV, but it's playable. WoW on it's own is silky smooth at all times. Primetime Ironforge is just eaten up in it's stride, even at nigh-on-full settings. The only thing that isn't on maximum is terrain distance and full screen glow.

And this is the plain desktop. The wallpaper was a good find for me. The only version of this you'll find at Blizzard is boxed in by borders and has a logo on it, I believe. I managed to find the art for it in high resolution at Minitokyo, and I'm very pleased with it. Another thing is that I usually keep the dock hidden, so I can make the maximum use of my monitor and not block out the wonderful wallpaper. I've left it in just for you guys to see what programs I have... Icons from left to right:

Finder, Dashboard, Camino, Mail, Photoshop, Adium (IM client), Transmit (FTP), WoW, iTunes, EyeTV, System Preferences, iPhoto and some other junk that I'm running at the time.

Please also note that because of the resolution, I've had to compress the images quite a lot, and they look quite ugly ;)
